PN Coal members left wondering
Confusion appears to be reining over at Pacific National Coal.
There have been multiple changed meeting dates and the company has continually failed to deliver on promised communications. And on top of that, the union has also heard reports of management telling members that that the original redundancy plan is being reviewed because they may have miscalculated their figures…
Adding further confusion to the situation is that in an interview screened on ABC News 24 ‘The Business’ program recently the Asciano CEO responded to a question about the robustness of coal contracts with the following:
“We have a very robust coal business” and contrary to what you read in the press sometimes, all the doom and gloom about the industry, it’s really the opposite we have seen record levels of throughout.”
The union is greatly concerned that the CEO’s statement contradicts the reasoning we’ve been given for the redundancies, and is seeking urgent talks with the company to discuss this further.
Members will be updated as soon as information comes to hand.
