Strike set for Alabama coal mines barring late agreement

Mar 31, 2021



Over 1,100 Alabama coal mine worders are ready to go on strike against Warrior Met Coal Inc.

The United Mine Workers of America said the walkout will begin Thursday night barring a last-minute labor agreement. The strike would include the company's No. 4 and No. 7 mines, a preparation plant and a central shop. Both locations are in Tuscaloosa County.

Warrior Met produces coal used in steel production in Asia, Europe and South America and reported a loss of about $35 million last year. A representative for the company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
