Alpha Natural Resources is planning to reduce it’s workforce.
Company officials announced Thursday that they plan to eliminate around 230 positions throughout the organization in an effort to reduce costs.
The plan involves further reducing operating and support expenses by at least $200 million in 2014 and beyond. It’s part of an ongoing effort by the company to better align it’s overhead and corporate support with its reduced operational footprint.
Officials said about 100 of those positions are currently empty and they will not be filled. Most of the positions that will be impacted are salaried.
The details on exactly what positions are being cut have not been released.
