interview with UMWA about Crandall Canyon online

interview with UMWA about Crandall Canyon online

Last week on the Heartland Labor Forum on 90.1 FM KKFI, streaming live at www.kkfi.org, I interviewed Phil Smith of the UMWA about Crandall Canyon mine in Utah.
That show is now posted online at www.heartlandlaborforum.org The Crandall Canyon segment is the first one after the 'news from our side.

Also in the archives from last April you can find streaming audio of an interview I did with Smith about the UMWA's report on Sago at www.heartlandlaborforum.org.

I am pasting below this weeks email from the Heartland Labor Forum.
