    UMWA event marks gains in union fight at Utah mine - BY DAVE FERGUSON, The Militant
    "We started this struggle two years ago and we have made great progress,” Mike Dalpiaz, UMWA District 22 international vice president, told the crowd. “But this project is not finished and the United Mine Workers don't start a project unless we can finish it.” He said the UMWA looked forward to swearing in soon the members of the new Local 9957.  
    Solidarity with Northwest strikers
    Dalpiaz encouraged the crowd to lend solidarity to the mechanics, cleaners, and custodial workers who are now walking the picket lines at Northwest Airlines around the country. "They have supported other unions during their struggles, now it is our turn to help them," he said.
