Following the fire at Peabody’s North Goonyella Coal Mine, the Collieries’ Staff and Officials Association has offered assistance to members about their legal rights and obligations.
Once the situation is stabilised, the Association will write to the Company seeking information about the investigation processes they intend to set up, and asking the Company to legally protect the interests of our members. We will soon brief and assist members at Peabody North Goonyella further on what to expect, and how to best protect their rights.
We have advised members to re-read the Collieries’ Staff and Officials Association Safety Booklet “Your Rights in Mine Safety Investigations” –
all members should keep a copy of this booklet handy at work were you can refer to it easily. If you need another copy if the booklet, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
