Man charged over alleged Oaky North picket line threats

A 40-year-old Maroochydore man will front Emerald Magistrates Court on December 19 after being charged with threatening to cause detriment near the Oaky North picket line.

Police will allege about 1.25am on September 26, the man made threats towards another man at the corner of Grasstree Rd and Oaky Creek Access Road, Lilyvale - just outside of Tieri.

The corner of that road is where Oaky North coal miners have been picketing since July over disagreements with mine owner Glencore in the new enterprise agreement.

In October, Tieri police officer Senior Constable David Pratt said two men had been charged for driving without due care and attention at the picket line.
