Casual coal miners should be wary about joining a class action being run by profit-driven litigation firm Adero after a Federal Court judge slammed a recent settlement for leaving workers with ‘diddly squat’.
BHP’s announcement today it will invest in more apprenticeships is a hollow promise, with existing training programs failing to provide Queenslanders with transferable skills and qualifications, the Miners’ Union said today.
Do you have what it takes to become part of a highly motivated and dedicated team of Union organisers that are at the forefront of industrial organising? This is a Mackay based fulltime position, working within the Queensland Mining areas and associated communities.
More workers have been told they’ll be forced on to lower pay and conditions on or lose their jobs at South32’s Appin mine as the Miners Union launches a new campaign to protect rights for casual miners.
