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.
Eighteen trapped miners are 300 metres below the surface at the mine near the town of Ermenek in Karaman province in Turkey.
Twenty workers have either been rescued or escaped on their own from the flooded coalmine, but hopes are fading for the remaining 18 trapped underground.
It is less than six months since the industrial homicide at Soma that killed 301 Turkish mineworkers on 13 May.
Leaders of IndustriALL Global Union’s Rio Tinto Network will gather in Mongolia on 22 October to plan the next moves in the worldwide campaign to improve worker rights at the mining giant.
The meeting, in the Mongolian capital Ulan Bator, will bring together IndustriALL affiliates from around the world. It follows a two-day conference in the city where unions, government officials and civil society groups gathered to discuss the labour agenda for socially sustainable mining in the global south.
The reported rejection of the Drayton South mine extension is a blow to Hunter jobs, the Miners Union said today.
CFMEU Mining and Energy Northern District President Peter Jordan said Drayton workers would be devastated at hearing the news via the media this morning.
“It is an appalling way for this news to be delivered,” said Mr Jordan.
“Over 500 Drayton mineworkers rely on Drayton coal for their livelihood. The extension would have given them secure employment into the future.
