This year, for Black History Month, we’re taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making Black history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today’s profile is Mike Wright of the Mine Workers (UMWA).

Mike Wright is a striking miner at Warrior Met Coal in Birmingham, Alabama. Wright and his union siblings have been on strike since April 1, 2021, fighting nonstop for the contract they deserve!
