Rio Tinto Global Network
A campaign to build union power at Rio Tinto plants around the world, uniting workers in the struggle for decent work.
Years of hard work by a group of dedicated Union members in WA’s Pilbara has resulted in a new four year enterprise agreement for train crews.
Despite the phased introduction of driverless trains, the agreement makes clear that Rio will continue to employ drivers.
WA District Secretary Gary Wood said the agreement was “a significant breakthrough after years of hard and painstaking work”.
Today marks the tragic anniversary of the underground explosion at Appin Mine on the NSW South Coast, which took the lives of 14 mineworkers, 35 years ago.
The explosion, which occurred at 11pm, was described as “a holocaust of exploding methane gas and coal dust”.
Ten of the men were killed as they were having their mid shift meal in the underground crib room.
Today is the anniversary of the day the Queensland community of Moura was hit with disaster, when a massive explosion at No. 4 mine claimed 12 lives, on 16 July 1986.
19 men were working underground when disaster struck; 12 were killed instantly and 7 were able to help each other to the surface through clouds of dust and gas. District Check Inspectors and rescue teams were quickly on the scene, but it was apparent from the intensity of the blast and the accounts of the survivors that the operation would be one of recovery rather than rescue.
