Warrior Met coal miners and union advocates picketed outside BlackRock’s New York headquarters this week, in support of more than 1,100 Alabama miners who have been striking for almost five months against Warrior Met Coal. BlackRock, the world’s largest hedge fund, is Warrior Met Coal’s largest investor. Demanding better wages and working conditions, the workers argue that BlackRock has allowed the coal company to exploit them. The United Mine Workers Association rejected a contract in April where the company offered workers a $1.50 pay increase over five years. “All we want is a fair contract,” said Chris Brubaker, who traveled from Jasper, Alabama for the rally.
