Zeigler City Council supports Peabody miners' right to form unions free from
employer interference

Zeigler, Il. At its October 24 meeting, the City Council of Zeigler passed a resolution supporting the right
of Peabody miners to organize a union free from interference from management. The resolution passed
by a vote of 3-0 with one abstention.

Our city has a long history of support for the United Mine Workers, said Mayor Dennis Mitchell.
Coalminers and the coal industry have and are an important part of our lives.

The resolution states that Peabody should allow its employees to choose freely whether to unionize. The
resolution requests that Peabody should remain neutral and not resort to the use of pressure tactics, such
as mandatory meetings on unionization, threats to close the mine, or any other form of interference or
intimidation. The resolution also requests that Peabody should agree to an expedited and fair process by
which the employees can make a decision about unionization.

A copy of the passed resolution will be sent to Peabodys CEO Greg Boyce.

1. Peabody were the prime global warming disinformation propagandists...
...before Exxon took their place in the 1990s.
