The United Mine Workers of America will be bringing its fight to Fairmont in a couple of weeks.

The "Fairness at Patriot" rally will take place on Tuesday, July 9 beginning at 10 a.m.

It will be held at the Fairmont State University football field.

The rally supports the active and retired miners who are losing their health care and pension benefits in Patriot Coal Corporation's Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which was filed on July 9, 2012.

The group encourages everyone to come out and show their support.
