Tentative Agreement Reached

A tentative agreement has been reached with the United Mine Workers of America and a coal operators association.

The United Mine Workers president said the tentative agreement had been reached for a new five year plan with the Bituminous Coal Operators Association. He said the passage of the abandoned mine land fund by congress helped the negotiations immensely.

Members will vote on the agreement Thursday.
