We are pleased to publicly release the film which was specially commissioned to celebrate 100 proud and militant years of the Miners Federation. The first meeting of the Federation's Central Council was on 8 July 1915.
CFMEU delegates today called on Newcastle Labor Councillors to reverse their decision to support divestment from the coal mining industry.
CFMEU Northern Mining and NSW Energy District President Peter Jordan said members unanimoiusly passed a resolution expressing their disappointment at the Labor Councillors’ decision.
“Labor should be the party that puts working people first, but this decision is gesture-politics that puts working people last,” said Mr Jordan.
“Our members feel abandoned by Labor’s decision to play politics with their jobs.
Workers at AngloAmerican’s Capcoal mine near Middlemount are reeling today after they were told that 85 secure jobs would go despite employees achieving all the set production records at the mine, the miners’ union said today.
CFMEU Mining and Energy District President Steve Smyth said this was another attack on secure jobs for local workers.
“Local workers at Capcoal have shown nothing but goodwill towards AngloAmerican. Through hard work, intensive rostering arrangements and dedication they have met all set production targets,” said Mr Smyth.
