George to chat to BMA in support of DIDO workers

GEORGE Christensen has scheduled a meeting with BMA today to arrange for local workers to be employed at the Daunia and Caval Ridge coal mines.

The two mines were approved for 100% FIFO by the previous state government.

Mr Christensen previously told the Daily Mercury that the only way to change 100% FIFO operations was by talking to the mining companies directly.

"100% FIFO mines were approved by the previous state government for the Daunia and Caval Ridge coal mines," he said.

"We are now feeling the pain of them."

A BMA spokeswoman said the company shared the passion to support local communities.

"We regularly engage with our stakeholders and look forward to future discussions with Mr Christensen," she said.
