Global BHP campaign meets in Chile

Published: 27 Sep 2019

IndustriALL Global Union is bringing together trade unions from Chile, Australia, Brazil, Colombia and Peru to strengthen union action and to call on BHP, one of the world’s biggest mining companies, to end to bad corporate behaviour at the expense of workers.

BHP is pushing a strategy to drive down wages and employment conditions in the mining industry, including replacing thousands of permanent jobs with casual labour hire.

Around the world, there are abundant examples of workers under pressure as BHP ruthlessly prioritizes profits at the expense of workers and communities.

CFMEU Mining and Energy will be represented by Queensland District President Stephen Smyth, who will bring global attention to BHP's Operations Services labour hire rip off.
