Seven CQ mines to strike for a week
BREAKING 11am: Workers from BHP's seven Bowen Basin coalmines will take protected strike action for seven days from next Wednesday, February 15.
Representatives from the Single Bargaining Unit (SBU) have today informed BHP of the industrial action after union members last Friday overwhelmingly approved the stoppage.
Workers at the Goonyella Riverside, Broadmeadow, Peak Downs, Saraji, Norwich Park, Gregory Crinum, and Blackwater mines will be involved in the strike from midday next Wednesday.
They will return to work at midday on Wednesday, February 22.
