SPARKS continued to fly between the Electrical Trades Union (ETU) and Sunwater, after four tradesmen and three apprentices were locked out of their workplace on Enterprise St for 24 hours.

ETU state organiser Scott Reichman said the workers were locked out today after they announced there would be a four-hour work stoppage in protest about their new enterprise bargaining agreement.

"We've been negotiating with Sunwater since May for a new enterprise agreement," he said.

"Negotiations started because Sunwater's been directed by the Government to strip away their conditions such as job security."

A Sunwater spokesperson said due to the ETU's timing of the work stoppage, it was impractical for Sunwater to offer work for the limited part of the day ETU members taking action would be available.
