Muswellbrook Coal Enterprise Agreement

April 11, 2021 – 2:33 am

CFMEU Mines and General Energy President Tony Maher said that the approval of the agreements by the Commission showed that labour laws against workers were stacked. As part of the new contract, Thiess performs mine planning, development and planning, drilling and explosives, overload disposal and coal mining services. This volume of work will create up to 300 permanent and local roles. Thiess has been supporting BHP at Mt Arthur Coal since 2017 and first providing load and transportation services, followed by additional mining services, including mining overload and coal at the southern end of the operation. After 12 months of negotiations and more than six months of conflict, the craftsmen of the Belobergi musiden depot have adopted a new enterprise agreement that reflects the conditions of the coal industry, with considerable improvements in terms of compensation, accident compensation and a number of certificates. CFMEU members in Hitachi, who use equipment in the Hunter Valley coal mines, have been granted employment rights that reflect the actual conditions of their work. Boggabri Coal miners receive $40,000 less per year than the Idemits coal mines in Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley and Ensham in Queensland, without explanation. “There is no reason why workers in the Gunnedah Basin should be worth less than other Idemitsu coal mines. They produce high-quality, cost-effective export coal.

The dispute concerned Hitachi`s refusal to recognize fitters and electricians as coal miners, while working in coal mines that maintain coal mines. “All we wanted was our legitimate claims,” said Ken Porthouse, vice president of the new Hitachi Muswellbrook CFMEU Lodge Foundation.

“We work in coal mines every day and we knew we wouldn`t have a fair business.” In 2018, BHP extended its agreement and the scope of Thiess` operations to additional services as a mine operator at the southern end of Mt Arthur Coal (ayredale and Roxburgh Pits). If your application has already been filed, you can verify the status of your contract by sending an email to the Commission`s team for the agreements. “It is shameful that mining giants like BHP are simply able to bypass existing union bargaining agreements and introduce new non-union agreements to reduce wages and conditions,” he said. Idemitsu said the enterprise agreement offered “generous remuneration, conditions and conditions and was vexing that mining remains sustainable in the future.” The new agreement specifies incoherent allowances, including paid food breaks and travel periods. CFMEU has filed an application with the Fair Work Commission for unpaid travel, resulting in tens of thousands of additional dollars for some workers.
