Port Kembla Coal Terminal management has shown total disrespect to it workers and the local community by issuing their deceptive public statement.
What they have put on the table is a ‘job security’ clause riddled with holes you could drive a truck through.
It took our legal team all of two minutes to assess that this clause would offer zero protection to any of the permanent workers at the terminal. It’s a total fraud.
A vague statement of intent is no job security guarantee, especially when it’s coming from this management.
There was a job security clause in the original enterprise agreement that made it extremely clear that the company cannot sack a permanent worker and replace them with a contractor. It would be simple to replicate this clause. The fact that management does not want to speaks volumes.
