The Week That Was 9th of March
Today on 360 Katie Woolf had The Week That Was while she was on location at Barramundi Auto with Matthew Cunningham from Sky News, Leader of Opposition Gary Higgins, Independent Member for Nelson Gerry Wood and Member for Solomon Luke Gosling.
They discussed INPEX with tragic news earlier in the week of a death of another worker on the project. Workers were told on Tuesday evening they must continue working or have a medical certificate after the death. In a notice informing all employees of the FIFO worker’s death, the subcontractor told workers the site would remain open. “Employees are expected to work in accordance with their roster – annual leave will not be granted retrospectively and personal leave will require a medical certificate,” the sign said. There was no reference to counselling services available to workers.
They also discussed Tennant Creek issues and their alcohol ban to continue for another week, also on the agenda Northern Territory Housing and Indigenous affairs.
