CFMEU calls for equal pay for OS, BHP says no

Published: 12 Aug 2020

CFMEU Mining and Energy General President Tony Maher has written to BHP CEO Mike Henry, calling on the company to end the unfair pay differential between Operations Services and direct BHP employees and offer the same pay for the same work, by employing them under existing site enterprise agreements.

A letter from Operations Services Vice President Mark Swinnerton in response confirmed the company had no interest in closing the gap in pay and conditions with direct BHP employees. He claimed that ‘no concerns about these terms and conditions have been raised by our employees.’
