The great coal jobs fraud (2018 UPDATE)
Study | 28 June 2018
This study, an update of our November 2016 analysis, examines the claims and finds that in almost all cases, they are exaggerated. In fact, even the current levels of employment cannot be maintained and some companies such as Elektroprivreda Srbije and the Pljevlja coal mine in Montenegro have already begun reducing their workforce. A fair and inclusive plan is urgently needed to transform coal-dependent communities.
