Mylan calls meeting, reasons unrevealed

The union representing employees of Mylan Pharmaceuticals’ Morgantown plant will hold a mandatory all-employee meeting at 9 a.m. Friday at the Morgantown Mariott at Waterfront Place.

Howard Martin, president of United Steel Workers Local 8-957, said Thursday that he could not comment on the meeting and didn’t know anything about what would be covered. The meeting is not open to the public.

The Dominion Post contacted Mylan and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about reports received that the meeting might be tied to FDA inspections of the plant.

The FDA said it had no information to share but suggested that The Dominion Post could file an online Freedom of Information Act request for records of inspectional correspondence. That request has been filed but it will be some weeks before the information arrives.

The FDA website shows no new warning letters sent to the company. The most recent were sent in April 2017, regarding violation of current good manufacturing process regulations at a plant in India and in August 2015 for similarly-termed violations in another Indian plant.

Mylan did not respond to a phone request for comment or to two emails listing specific questions.
