On the significance of Kaine's UMWA endorsement

Kilo writes here that an endorsement from the UMWA is not what it once was.

Indeed, in 1990, there were Pittston, Westmoreland, and Island Creek, among others, operating union mines in Southwest Virginia, and UMWA District 28 covered Virginia. Now, there are no Pittston, no Westmoreland, no Island Creek (as such), and no District 28.
