UMWA STAGING MEDIA EVENT IN AUSTRALIA

 ST. LOUIS, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- "The United Mine Workers officials (UMWA) have traveled 10,000 miles to orchestrate a media event in Australia, but refuse to walk two blocks in Washington to the bargaining table," said Ronald H. Greenfield, spokesman for Peabody Holding Company, Inc., today in response to the UMWA statements regarding Australian miners walking off their jobs yesterday at Peabody Resources Limited mines.
 "Instead of globetrotting, they should sit and bargain on the real issues. The Bituminous Coal Operators' Association (BCOA) says the dispute with the UMWA is basically over the need for mines employing union members to become more productive and competitive with non-union mines in order to protect UMWA jobs.
 "We are told by BCOA that the UMWA walked away from the bargaining table May 3 and has refused to return," Greenfield said. "The BCOA company negotiators say they are ready to resume bargaining with UMWA at any time."
 Peabody Resources Limited is an affiliate of Peabody Holding Company, Inc. Peabody Holding Company's subsidiaries, Peabody Coal Company and Eastern Associated Coal Corp., are members of the BCOA, and some of their mines have been selectively struck by the UMWA.
