Australian workers fighting global gas company

Following the announcement of a few weeks ago that workers were being offered new contracts at 30% less pay, a picket line has now been established outside of Exxon-Mobil's Longford gas plant. The company that was engaged to maintain this plant, UGL, is trying to force existing workers to sign up with a new subsidiary company. This company is offering the workers 30% less pay, less annual leave, less allowances and no control over shift rosters. In disputes with global companies like Exxon-Mobil, co-ordinated industrial actions across its many global sites would be the most effective.
