Meet to end sugar ban
BUNDABERG Sugar and the unions will take their dispute to Fair Work Australia today in a bid to finalise enterprise bargaining agreements.
In a meeting yesterday, unions told the company that an overtime ban would be going ahead from 4pm today - a move that will shut down Millaquin mill again just weeks from the end of an already-disrupted crush.
“Unless employees agree to lift the overtime bans, Millaquin will be unable to crush cane during this period, which will directly impact on our growers,” Bundaberg Sugar general manager Ray Hatt said.
Australian Workers Union organiser Tony Beers did not return the NewsMail calls.
