Laid Off Miners Sue Over Health Benefits


A group of Macoupin County miners are suing their former employer over health benefits.

 

The State Journal-Register reports attorneys for the nearly 200 former Crown III miners say Springfield Coal Company and Tri-County Coal Company are obligated by collective-bargaining agreements to provide up to a year of health benefits following a layoff.

 

Springfield Coal and Tri-County claim they were never signatories to the collective-bargaining agreement.

 

The case is scheduled to proceed next month.
