I've done quite well at Anglo American Coal, but not everyone has had the same experience. Right now, Met Coal prices have been low for some years and keep falling, so we are going into Care and Maintenance. So no jobs will be available from our mine in some years.
The Safety culture of Anglo American is good, but it has never translated into good results on the ground here in Canada. Management seems to be stuck in a branch-plant mindset, where 'experts' are brought out every year from Australia, make a bunch of changes and then go back. There is very little continuity, and too much turn-over in the work-force at all levels.
Some improvements have been made in productivity and efficiency at the mine, but not enough to keep pace with the falling prices. So, goodbye Anglo.
