Teys imports Vietnamese workers



TEYS Bros is importing a re- ported 60 Vietnamese meat-workers to work at its Lakes Creek abattoir.

The skilled workers, most of whom will be working in the boning room and on the kill floor, will join 97 Brazilian workers already at the plant.

A Teys spokesperson yester- day said a shortage of skilled workers in Australia had forced the company to look overseas.

"We have lost people because of the opportunities being of- fered to them by the mining in- dustry,'' he said.
