Coal miners in the coal mining region of northern Alberta are planning to strike this week as part of a global anti-mining campaign to pressure politicians to act on climate change.
The region has long been a target for coal mining operations and coal companies, who have been seeking to expand their operations in the region.
But in recent years, some of those operations have come under pressure from climate change activists and environmentalists, who say the mining industry is being harmed by climate change, while also pushing to increase pollution from the mining process.
The province has also announced a moratorium on new coal mining in the area, while many environmental groups have voiced their support for the strike.
Coal industry says its impact ‘very small’ In a news release, the Mining Workers Union of Canada said it is preparing to mobilize workers in the mining area to protest on Tuesday.
“We are ready to do whatever it takes to ensure that this strike is successful, so that workers, businesses and communities around the world can feel the impacts of this industrial catastrophe,” the union said in the release.
“The union is working to protect coal miners and their families and to put an end to coal mining’s destruction of the environment and human health.”
But the union’s statement also noted that it is a relatively small number of workers, and the union is trying to spread its message through a variety of channels, including social media, the website of the National Coal Council and other outlets.
“As the industry has expanded and expanded, coal mining has become more and more of an industry, and its impact on people’s lives is much more serious than coal mining itself,” said Bob Gagnon, a spokesperson for the National Copper Council, which represents many of the companies that operate in the sector.
“They have very little impact on the people who do it.
So, the fact that there is a union that has this very important issue that they are fighting for and trying to make sure that people understand it and that it’s an issue that is very much on people, it really is a very small impact,” he said.
Gagnons association with the coal industry says it has worked hard to ensure workers are adequately represented on the union side of things, but said it also hopes the strike can make a significant difference.
“There’s a huge amount of concern about the mining sector and its effects,” he explained.
But he said that the unions have yet to meet with the companies to see if they are interested in the strike, which is expected to take place at the end of the week. “
That’s really a part of what this strike will be about, and what the unions are trying to highlight.”
But he said that the unions have yet to meet with the companies to see if they are interested in the strike, which is expected to take place at the end of the week.
“Our members have been in contact with the company, but it’s still not really clear,” Gagnis said.
“So we’re going to try to find out more and see if we can get a resolution, but at the moment, we haven’t had a chance to discuss this.”
