PIKE COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- More than 100 miners in eastern Kentucky are facing layoffs, Alpha Natural Resources officials tell WSAZ.

The company on Thursday issued a 60-day WARN notice to 114 employees of Sidney Coal in Pike County, as well as to three employees with Maxxim Shared Services. Both are subsidiaries of Alpha Natural Resources.

Company officials say the layoffs are in response to the company idling the mine later this year.
