Mine Workers Win Labor Board Ruling

Struggling coal miners at the Kingston family-owned Co-Op Mine in Huntington now can vote to join the United Mine Workers of America union without fear their voices will be drowned out by co-workers related to the polygamous clan.

In a ruling handed down this week, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in Denver determined workers at the mine who are related by blood or marriage to the Kingston family won't be allowed to vote on UMWA representation.

I'm glad to see the UMWA won this victory in Colorado, although it going to be legally challenged by the Kingstons.

Finally a state NLRB has ruled in favor of the working class and organized labor, a rare thing in this Bush America where Corporations are always right and workers are expected to follow the Wally World creed: "shut up and work".
