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.

Australian Workers Union organiser Tony Beers did not return the NewsMail calls.
