    Utah miners plan picket, other actions to press union fight - BY KATHERINE BENNETT, The Militant
    Co-Op miners told the press May 31 they decided to hold another picket line on June 2 at the Co-Op mine near this town to press their fight to get their jobs back and win representation by the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA). The action follows a picket line that miners and their supporters held on May 23 at the road that leads to the mine, which is owned by C.W. Mining.

    ‘Militant’ backers campaign for endorsements in fight against coal bosses’ suit - BY PAUL MAILHOT, The Militant
    Attorneys for the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret Morning News, Utah's main daily newspapers, and the Militant will argue June 7 in front of Federal District Court judge Dee Benson here to dismiss a "defamation" lawsuit filed by the owners of the Co-Op mine. Lawyers for the company, C.W. Mining, and its allied International Association of United Workers Union (IAUWU) will be there to argue for going ahead with the suit.
