There are thousands of men without jobs right now due to mines shutting down and you all are on here complaining because the company is asking you not to wear clothing from another mining company. Get real. I think there are more pressing problems in the world whether or not you get to sport your spiffy sticker on your bucket or hat.

I dont work for Arch But I do work for Patriot, and use to work for Massey.
I am not union and have never been but it's going to come down to where if these company's finally succeed in dispursing the "UMWA" a job in mining wont be worth having, If there is any after Obama and the EPA gets done with it.
It will be like it was years ago when they treated people like dirt and payed with script.
When times are good they love ya and give you the whole wide world but as soon as coal starts going down sombody is going off the f@ckin hill.

You mighta thought they were pricks, but the numbers don't lie. They ran the place better. Fewer accidents, zero fatalities, more bonuses, better work morale & more coal mined under them than these new pricks.

Definition of retention bonus........

http://www.google.com/url...

So they must be worried about losing employees to other jobs? Guess if they were that good to work for , you wouldnt need a retention bonus would you? hmmmm or do they get some sort of special tax credit to make the IRS think thats what they need to do to keep you? Sounds like a loop hole for them or some unneccessary spending with coal being in decline and jobs hard to come by. LOL

Stirrin the pot, come on pro-coal, lets get it on today. LOL

I've never worked for Arch or ICG, but I have worked for Bluestone, Mechel-Bluestone, Massey, and Alpha. I recently left Alpha for all the same reasons you people are disgusted with Arch.
Mismanagement, treated like dirt, higher insurance premiums for less coverage, loss of already earned bonuses, threats and fits by "managers" so stupid they couldn't tie their own shoes, mandatory meeting after meeting just to be berated and threatened.
Arch must be bad, but they don't sound any worse than Alpha.
I couldn't be happier with my new job though. NONE of that type BS and more more for less hours too.
