KSL Newsradio Exclusive A union boss is claiming he sent his staff to help in the early hours of the Crandall Canyon mine collapse, only to have that help refused because it was unionized.

United Mineworkers of America Vice President Mike Dalpiaz calls it "appalling" during a tragedy. He says his interest was only to help, and management at the Crandall Canyon mine asked his staff to leave the property.

KSL has contacted the mine and Murray Energy for a response, and is still waiting.
