News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. announced the appointment of Matthew T. Denholm as the Assistant to the Regional Director of the NLRB’s Regional office in Cincinnati, Ohio (Region 9).  In his new position, Mr. Denholm will assist Regional Director Gary Muffley in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in parts of Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia.

The National Labor Relations Board has ruled that Massey Energy Company and its subsidiary, Mammoth Coal Company, unlawfully refused to hire former unionized employees in order to avoid union obligations at a West Virginia coal mine it had purchased.

Massey bought the mine in Kanawha County in 2004 from Horizon Natural Resources Company after Horizon declared bankruptcy. Massey then created Mammoth Coal, a subsidiary, to operate the mine.
