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.
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.
Workers at BHP's highly profitable Daunia mine will today begin to vote on a new proposed workplace agreement offering substandard conditions and little job security, the Miners Union says.
CFMEU Mining & Energy Queensland President Stephen Smyth said workers at the 100% FIFO mine deserve better than what is on offer.
"The fact is that BHP makes huge profits from its Bowen Basin coal mines, and Daunia is no exception," said Mr Smyth.
