With a dumbass like Greg Feltner running this outfit, it'll be a miracle if any of them keeps a job.

I thought if a big company laid off a bunch of workers there had to be a 60 day notice given to them first???
who knows

They dont have to give a 60 day notice as long as the workers are giving some kind of severance pay.

You think there so insensitive to there workers,Look what there doing to there old truckers that have been there for so many years struggling just to make ends meet,There hauling for nothing and the company officials know it,This is what is so dirty,They will say if you dont want to haul,We have people waiting to haul cheaper,As MR,COUCH SAYS, Which this could cause more trouble than its worth,You dont do people like that,Especially the ones that have struggled for so many years,And they keep putting more and more on the trucker as far as threats,That they can replace you with someone else for a cheaper price,And that is a dam bunch of shit.If you starve a dog he may just BITE YOU IN THE ASS! If your coal dont get hauled then every one is out to play.They say the truckers are going to strike,Flint ridge to start with, Then mac-a-nelly,They want cotton couch to resign before they go back to work along with feltner,And they might get what they want,Because if your coal dont move,Then all jobs dont work.Now Feltner,Do you think you pay an equal wage compaired to every one else,You are so wrong,And i hope you read this,Every job is different,Every road is different,This lets me know that you dont know what the hell you and Couch are talking about,Get a Rabies shot your dog is hungry,

I also heard that they had a meeting,And were going to ask ARCH officals for couches resignation,This may wake someone up,Maybe MR.COUCH,any-one can change for the better,And wake up to reality.Then again they may fire every dam one of them,That held the meeting and contacted ARCH officals.You know this looks bad on both sides.You should be able to talk to your truck boss without going to ARCH MINERAL officals,They may want to know why you cant talk to your truck boss,And want to know from him why,This dont look good on him or feltner.If all the truckers want some-ones resignation before they will go back to work would worrie me if i were the truck boss,He needs to know this before you cause him to loose his job,He may turn out to be the best truck boss you ever had,Confront him with you issues,I would hate for anyone to loose there JOB!.

They are going to work,After the first of the year,There will be 5and6 days a week.They thined out some dead beats,In order to do this it had to be done this way,Some will be called back.But the ones that want,Know who they are.Wouldnt you if you were a sorry ass.This day and time you dont dead beat,bitch,and cause trouble.

Cotton Couch is just one of Greg Feltner's puppets. Just a glorified "yes-man". He will do whatever he is told to do. Greg Feltner is the real dumbass at the top. He makes one stupid decision after another. ARCH will see how stupid he is when they finally take over and will probably get rid of him. He is of no importance at all. Greg is just an educated dumbass, with zero knowledge of how to mine coal. These layoffs did get rid of some deadbeats, but it also put some good workers in bad shape for the Holidays. Maybe they will be called back, maybe they won't. If nothing changes, they'll be better off somewhere else.

You are right about Cotton Couch, but, lets name them all Greg Feltner, Cotton Couch, Rodney Campbell and Will Couch, as soon as all of it comes together I'm afraid them and their wives will have to come off their high horses and i cant wait to see this I hope they fire all of them nothing but a bunch of company suck too goods it happend to Jimmy Ray and it will happen to them you dont get to over the top until you are brought back down to size and all the little people you screwed on the way to the top are the asses you will kiss coming back down just remember that because somewhere somehow the little people you high hatted is watching for all of it to happen

I'm not sure if you listed the top company sucks, or the top company dumbasses. That group of guys needs to be gone. Greg laid off a bunch of good men and is already telling his Leslie Co. buddies to wait til the first of the year and he will get them jobs with Arch. I know of three personally that he has jobs promised to. Why would a good company like Arch want to associate itself with a piece of trash like Greg Feltner?

Greg is my old college roomate, so watch how you speak about him. The reason you are all getting laid off is simple... you make too much money. Greg was telling me at the first of the year they are bringing in sixty mexicans to get certified and trained, Greg also stated that the highest wage for them would be $14.35hr and since greg is hiring "new" people the Company is getting a federal tax break for putting "new" employees to work. Greg is briging in some of his friends and promoting them, and to oversee that this new takeover go smoothly....
