Union, Warrior Met Coal reach tentative deal to end strike

07 Apr 2021

The United Mine Workers of America announced the agreement with Warrior Met Coal Inc., where members have been on strike at two mines and adjoining facilities since Thursday.
 
The company hasn't comment publicly, and details of the tentative deal haven't been released. But the union says meetings will be held Wednesday to explain the agreement to members, and a vote will be held on Friday.
 
 
Statement from Warrior Met Coal:
 
"Throughout the negotiations process with the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA), Warrior Met Coal’s vision has remained on the future. A future where we provide our employees with a competitive package while protecting jobs and the longevity of the Company and its workforce. We have always valued and appreciated our employees’ hard work and our priorities remain keeping people employed with long-lasting careers and ensuring Warrior Met Coal remains financially stable in a particularly volatile coal market. We are pleased to have reached a tentative agreement and hope it gets ratified by the UMWA in order for our miners to resume work and continue the positive impact this industry has on our state’s economic growth."
