Canadian Panel Orders Walter Energy, Inc. to Pay Lost Wages After Coal Mine Closure

A British Columbia labor panel has ordered Walter Energy, Inc. to pay 60 days of lost wages to workers who were laid off without being given prior notice at the Wolverine metallurgical coal mine in Tumbler Ridge. Walter decided to close the mine after declining coal prices made the coal operations financially unsustainable. The ruling, issued by the British Columbia Labour Relations Board on July 24, 2014 Walter failed to provide the required 60 days' notice to discuss an adjustment plan to the union or workers before the layoffs. The workers were represented by the United Steelworkers Local 1-424 of Canada. The union earlier had claimed that Walter violated labor laws in dealing with the closure of the Wolverine mine. According to the ruling, Walter on April 15 provided all employees at Wolverine with the notice of a temporary layoff, immediately affecting approximately 300 workers. About 50 employees continued to work to maintain the site. Walter, in its defense, argued that it was a temporary layoff and the mandatory requirement to serve a prior notice does not apply to such circumstances. The company intends to resume Phase 4A operations at the Wolverine mine.
