Emergency Services Officers at Morwell's Hazelwood power station were striking for 4 months, demanding better pay and conditions on par with their fellow workers at Yallourn and Loy Yang power plants, increased numbers and proper safety training.
Emergency Services Officers take on responsibilities in situations of fires, leakages, equipment failures and all other safety risks in the mine and the power plant. Yet their base rate of pay is just $19.32 per hour, only slightly above minimum wage.
The company employed scabs in the power plant, while strking workers were locked out. The Hazelwood Power Plant Workers need your support & solidarity.
