NLRB revises damages calculations in Warrior Met strike
[TRIANGLE, VA.] Commenting on a revised damages calculation issued by Region 10 of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that conforms to the initial amount the Region had indicated would be assessed, United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) International President Cecil E. Roberts issued the following statement today:
“We appreciate that NLRB Region 10 took another look at the damages it had initially assessed and recognized that the number should be in line with what Region 10 had initially indicated would be charged. This recalculation, which comes to about $435,000 plus interest, conforms to the number we had been told we would be charged.
“We are ready to pay that amount, put this behind us and negotiate a fair and reasonable contract with Warrior Met Coal that will settle this strike. Let’s get this done.”
