Charleston, W.Va. — In my piece today, I quoted the wife of a worker at a Massey Energy coal mine who said the company denied her husband’s request to take time off to attend the funerals of friends who died in the April 5 explosion at Massey’s Upper Big Branch Mine.
I put in a call to Massey to ask if it was the company’s policy not to grant time off to attend funerals. Just now, I got a call back from Massey spokesman Troy Andes, who said, “We know of no instances when miners were denied a request to attend a funeral.”
It’s worth mentioning, though, that even if Massey has no policy along these lines, most of the mines are run by Massey subsidiaries that may have their own policies.
