Miners wave scab placards at Dysart

WORKERS have vented their frustrations over stalled negotiations with resources giant BMA at a protest line outside Norwich Park this week.

Waving placards condemning “scabs” and proclaiming Dysart a “community, not a camp”, the union members maintained the line for 36 hours, the longest work stoppage since protected industrial action began last month.

The Single Bargaining Unit, comprising the AMWU, CFMEU and ETU, has been negotiating with BMA since November.

“We've made slight progress but quite frankly, we've still got a long way to go,” CFMEU vice-president Glenn Power said.

A BMA spokeswoman this week confirmed the company was continuing to meet and negotiate with the unions and believed progress was being made.
