17:08 EDTCNXCONSOL Energy to lay off 147 workers
CONSOL Energy has issued notice under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of its intent to complete the idle of its Fola operations near Bickmore, W. Va., resulting in a layoff of 131 surface and office employees and 16 employees at the company's Little Eagle Deep Mine. The layoffs will occur during a 14-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m., on February 14, 2013. Employees were officially briefed on the situation on December 14. CONSOL Energy attributed this WARN notice to the expected February completion of coal processing and shipping from its preparation plant and recovery of equipment and infrastructure from the Little Eagle Deep Mine. CONSOL Energy anticipates that accelerated reclamation work will continue through mid-summer. Earlier this year, the company announced it would lay-off 318 employees and reassigned the remaining 147 employees from mining to reclamation work. The only coal produced through that transition occurred on the surface and was incidental to reclamation. A combination of market conditions and increasing pressure from the Environmental Protection Agency, which resulted in both increased costs of surface mining and significant uncertainty for the company's power generation customers related to the continued use of Central Appalachian coal were cited as reasons for the idling.
