BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance to Lay Off 100 Workers at Queensland Coal Mine

BHP Billiton, Mitsubishi to lay off 100 workers at Queensland coal mine. The joint venture partners decided to move up the schedule for the ramping down of the mine's final longwall panel. About 100 workers at the Crinum coal mine in Queensland, Australia, will be laid off as the mine ramps down longwall development ahead of schedule. BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance, or BMA, is a 50/50 joint venture between BHP Billiton Ltd. and Mitsubishi Corp. The ramping down of the final longwall panel was initially scheduled for extraction in 2016, but the company revised the timeline after studying several factors, including reserve depletion.

BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance to Slash 230 Jobs at the Saraji Mine

BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance announced plans to slash 230 jobs at the Saraji mine in Queensland, Australia, have raised concerns that the joint venture is trying to replace permanent workers with cheap contract labor. The Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union, or CFMEU, has questioned whether the job cuts are a genuine redundancy requirement given that BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance still appears to be putting labor hire workers and contractors on. The CFMEU wants BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance to provide documentation and evidence to show the job cuts are necessary. Meetings between the alliance and the Australian government's Fair Work Commission are continuing.
