What Mine's did they lay off? And what mines does your husband work at?
Alpha bought Sidney Coal but no major changes don't go into effect until after new years.
Sidney paid every two weeks, Even before Alpha took over.
I did hear that Alpha was going to drop Sidney Coal in 2012 and shut it down.

No one is getting a bonus or the guys they layed off? It's not right every employee deserves that bonus.

This is true, my husband is a sec. foreman at 9, he said the coal was no good at 8 and they gave the miners a choice to go to blackmountain or virginia, the contract miners lost their jobs, that was all. and as far as the bonus, we are getting them around christmas time.

none of the men gets a xmas bonus.never have.they get a retention bonus 2 times a the frist week of june and the other one by the last week of dec.myself and my dad both work at the north fork is not a bad place to work.the pay is going to ever tow weeks.what does it is the same money the same pay.they are given the men a weeks pay where it will not put them in a hard place when they change to two week need to be thinking god you have a good job.and stop looking for some reason to complain about.if your husban did not get a retention bonus he is not working for the co.or he is lieing to you.who is his employer.and if he has his met.card up to date.he should have got another big bonus.some thing done seam right about what you are saying

I think it is a bunch of bull that Enterprise is laying off truckers from Letcher County and keeping truckers from Knott and Floyd, when the truckers from Letcher County have more time than them.

Be glade you are getting laidoff now because alpha is broke they are getting equipment repo all over wva and they are being sued be some of there suppliers the massy deal put them over the top massy did not owne half of what the sold them alpha will be selling of some of there companys and closeing the rest and the reason the letcher county trucks are being laid off is because of jim ward and carroll smith gave them a hard time and randy thomson will work with them and try to do what ever it takes to keep his people working the deal is that enterprise needs water at there washer plant and the county(jim ward office)put a stop to them getting it so guess who gets laid off
