Last week delegates from around the world met in Hanover, Germany, to discuss the serious challenges facing the coal mining industry. The conference, organised by global union IndustriALL, confronted the impacts of climate change, the market downturn and precarious work on our members.
CFMEU Mining and Energy was represented by General President Tony Maher and General Secretary Andrew Vickers.
Over 100 security guards for Rio Tinto in Madagascar have won a three week strike, a first step toward addressing poor working conditions for contactors at the mine.
The workers, employed by Pro Tech Security to guard Rio Tinto’s QMM ilmenite mine, struck in response to the firing of two guards who are leaders of IndustriALL affiliate FISEMA. Strikers demanded that the two union leaders be reinstated and that a manager who routinely verbally abused workers and their families be dismissed.
The Mineworkers Trust grants scholarships each year to promising students from the families of mining and energy workers. Candidates should be undertaking, or applying to undertake, a course at Diploma level or higher at TAFE or a public university.
