Mining industry 'needs to look after itself' after fatal accident.
After yesterday's tragic event, in which two mineworkers lost their lives at Austar mine in the Hunter Valley, Northern District President Peter Jordan, has spoken to the ABC's 7.30 program.
He says, "These incidents shouldn't happen. Mine workers should be able to go to work. It is a difficult, dangerous industry, but still, the industry should be able to let these mine workers go home to their families at the end of their shift."
Two workers have tragically died at the Austar coal mine in the Hunter Valley after a wall collapsed, causing fatal injuries.
At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with the deceased mineworkers’ families, friends and workmates.
Our Union's Northern District will make available any and all assistance required by the families in these most tragic of circumstances, and will offer support to members who were working with the deceased.
