CFMMEU calls on Adani to guarantee local jobs

The powerful mining union has sought assurances from Indian conglomerate Adani that it will provide permanent local jobs at its controversial Queensland mine, highlighting the support its members have given the project.

Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union national president Tony Maher wrote to Adani Australia chief executive Lucas Dow on Tuesday “to urgently seek clarification regarding the nature of work that Adani intends to provide” if the Carmichael mine was approved.

“Your proposed project has received much support in Queensland, including from union members, on the grounds it will generate local jobs,” Mr Maher wrote in the letter seen by The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

“If the project is approved, I am eager to ensure the support it has received is not misplaced.”
