Two-hundred and fifty members of USW Local 5114 have been on strike for nearly two years at Hecla’s Lucky Friday mine in Mullan, Idaho. They are holding the line against Hecla’s demand for unnecessary concessions and the company’s attempts to bust the union. Strikers from Local 5114 will be in Vancouver on January 28th for protests aimed at Hecla’s Canadian corporate office and at Hecla’s sponsorship of the annual meeting of the Association for Mineral Exploration.
