Mt Isa miners walk out

Miners at MIM's Mount Isa operations struck on November 6 in protest at traditional union work being performed by non-union members under a company restructuring process.

The 2400 Australian Workers Union members walked out for 24 hours, halting production at the giant Mount Isa and Hilton base metals mines.

AWU Mount Isa district organiser Roy Harris said the workers would return the following morning, but refused to rule out further industrial action if the company failed to respond adequately to a list of union resolutions. n
