- Administrative History:
- Chip Yablonski was an experienced labor law attorney, who was a Law Clerk to a Federal Appeals Court Chief Judge and an appellate court litigator for the National Labor Relations Board when he was tapped by his father, Joseph A. “Jock” Yablonski to become a chief strategist and campaign organizer in an election for the presidency of the United Mine Workers of America (UMW) which was to be held on December 9, 1969. The election campaign was marred by violence and threats and massive violations of the Labor Management and Reporting Act, as confirmed by multiple court decisions and Congressional Committee Hearings and Reports. The elder Yablonski challenged the election outcome on multiple grounds and repeatedly demanded that the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) should investigate the corrupt conduct of the UMW incumbents led by Tony Boyle.
