Last week we took our Same Job Same Pay campaign to workers in the Hunter Valley.
Labour hire workers in this region will be one of the biggest regional beneficiaries from Same Job Same Pay laws.
Latest data from Coal Services shows that in the NSW Northern District coalfields, 43.2% of open cut and 21.9% of underground coal miners are contractors, rather than direct employees.
Dan Repacholi MP joined us at various Lodge meetings in the Hunter Valley to talk about where the legislation is up to and how closing the labour hire loopholes will help wages rise!
