The Australian Workers’ Union has slammed a decision by the NSW Government to use rail imported from Spain instead of steel produced in Whyalla to supply the Sydney Metro Northwest project.


Australian Workers’ Union National Secretary Scott McDine has thrown his union’s support behind new calls from Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest for an inquiry into the iron ore strategy of big miners engaged in Australia. 



Australia’s anti-dumping regime is vital to protect the integrity of local markets from anti-competitive behaviour and should be strengthened, not weakened, according to the Australian Workers’ Union (AWU). 



The Australian Workers’ Union has slammed the Fair Work Building and Construction inspectorate — and its director, Nigel Hadgkiss — for using his powers to terrorise and intimidate workers and fundamentally undermine the culture of safety on Australian construction sites. 


Christopher Pyne is right is asking the NSW Government to step up the plate and use Australian steel – but simply handballing the future of the steel industry to State Premiers is not good enough.
