Oz coal labour dispute

Two global unions have put a major Oz coal exporter on notice for its failure to consult the workforce over an alteration to working agreements.

Negotiations for a new enterprise agreement at Port Waratah Coal Services (PWCS) began last August and there have since been 50 meetings with management to try to resolve the issue – all to no avail. The International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) and Industrial Global Union say that the bargaining has been marred by “management intransigence” and “aggressive anti-union tactics” – largely by shutting out the trade unions from negotiations.
