Around 90 TECO Coal employees lose jobs




CORBIN, Ky (WYMT/WKYT)- Another 90 employees in the coal industry have been laid off.

TECO Coal Corporation is reducing their staffing due to the state of the coal market.

All of their mines are affected, and the layoffs included both production and administration and support staff.

"The market for coal has been weak both for thermal or steam coal and also in the weakness in the metallurgical coal market," said Paul Matney, Director of Personnel.

No mines are shutting down, but TECO Coal officials tell us they had to make smaller layoffs company wide including at operations in Pike and Perry Counties.

In all around 90 workers lost their jobs.

"We have people that have been part of our TECO Coal family 20 some years, and you cannot work with people 20 years and it not be really terrible," said Matney.

TECO Coal officials say this was a tough decision made due to the state of the coal industry, and they hope it's temporary.

"We know them, we know their family, and we know that this affects their family, but at some point you have to make a decision to do what's right for the business," said Matney.

He says he hopes the market for coal comes back soon, so they can put their employees back to work.

Matney says about two-thirds of the layoffs were production employees and the rest were administration and support staff.

In January, TECO Coal laid off around 100 miners at Perry County Coal, Matney says about half of those have been called back to work.

The news just had part of the video on. They stated that the video had gone viral on youtube. They did not name the store involved, just stated it was in eastern Kentucky. They also said that they had spoken to management and were told that they were aware of it and it had been "taken care of"
Still there

yes, clearly EVERYONE has heard about that..like it's the end of time. However, WYMT also reported prior to TECO's act of communism that an unnamed coal company was restoring 150 jobs. Do your research. I wish people had coal piles shoved up their asses, sick to death of hearing about it. Go get an education, and a real job like the rest of the world.

yeah end of the world to 200 and something people who just lost their jobs prick.
