Layoffs At Tri County Coal Stem From ADM Contract Not Being Renewed

Nearly 190 miners from the state’s last unionized coal mine received layoff notices last week.


Tri County Coal issued the 60-day notices to the workers last week.


The Crown III mine will close because their major customer didn’t renew a contract for next year.


That customer is Archer Daniels Midland.


Tom Austin, vice president of Springfield Coal Co., tells the SJ-R that Tri County Coal’s Crown III mine will reopen in the future.
