Alpha gets off to union-free start

As reported here in the Coalfield Progress, the company's SW VA subsidiaries won the UMWA's first campaigns to become recognized as the representative of the work force. The article says that Alpha Natural Resources "now employs 2,100 people with operations in Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Colorado." The election bar under the NLRA prevents the UMWA from trying again until next year.
