    Being forced to treat hourly employees in unethical ways. Forced to lie to cover upper management screw ups. Forced to lie to to cover up things during federal inspections.

    Go back to treating people in an ethical manner. Stop covering up for management screw ups on site. Hold salary people accountable not just pass blame on

    I worked at Westmoreland Coal

    Pros

    Most of the employees are great, decent pay and benefits, history of the organization is one to be proud of.

    Cons

    As the corporate executives changed so did the treatment of employees. Everything became about the executives. Such a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change out the majority of corporate leadership in order to return to being an ethical company.
