Oaky North: what happened to the rat?

Published: 8 Aug 2017

On Thursday the Fair Work Commission looked at the case of our disenfranchised miners at Oaky North and instead of looking at the fairness of the workplace rights being stripped from workers by mining giant Glencore, it decided to ask the union to let down our balloon rat at the protest site near the mine. If the Fair Work Commission’s focus is on balloons instead of workers’ rights, its little wonder people think the rules are broken.
