Randal McCloy goes home for a visit as Sago Mine Reopens
Jerry has some great news about Sago Mine survivor Randal McCloy. I also see that the Sago mine is clear to reopen. The company reports lightning being the cause of the blast. This has angered the UMWA and MSHA officials.
The United Mine Workers called the company's announcement "unprecedented, reckless and premature." UMW President Cecil Roberts said his safety experts have never seen a company issue its own report before experienced, impartial state and federal investigators had released theirs. Link
As for the workers at Sago
"Everybody I've talked to is ready to go back," said Rocky Starkey, who worked at the mine for three years before the Jan. 2 accident that killed his good friend and longtime roof-bolting partner, Jerry Groves. Link
If these workers wanted the union, would now not be the time to vote it in? Just my thought.
