Walter Energy Plans to Cut Around 400 Jobs

Walter Energy is planning to cut around 400 jobs from its Brookwood coal mines in the US, due to fall in coal prices. Poor market conditions within the steel industry have prompted the company's decision to go ahead with the job cuts. The company has issued notices to 370 union and salaried employees, which includes notices to eliminate management positions. The jobs planned to be eliminated at the facilities within the next two months. With the job cuts, expected to begin this July, the company will cut 20% of its 1,700 employees.
