CFMEU - Mining and Energy Division
A team of researchers from The University of Newcastle are investigating safety and risk-taking in Australian Coal Mines. The research is being funded by the Australian Coal Association’s Research Program (ACARP). The aim is to improve safety. All Australian coal mine industry workers, both employees and contractors, are invited to participate in the research by completing a short (20 minutes), anonymous and confidential online survey.
Last Friday, Mark Richards, a Hazelwood unit controller and proud CFMEU member, made this speech to tell what the new Worker Transfer Scheme means to the Latrobe Valley workers and community:
Last November a thousand Latrobe Valley workers received the shocking news that our foreign owners had decided to close Hazelwood and we were all going to be without jobs.
Major mining unions and the IndustriALL Global Union, representing mineworkers worldwide, are calling on the management of La Escondida copper mine in Chile and BHP Billiton, the majority owner, to resume collective agreement negotiations.
