Glencore to axe 75 jobs from NSW mine

In Latest News

GLENCORE has announced 75 workers will be made redundant from Ulan West mine, in western New South Wales.

The company said they are implementing a number of changes across their New South Wales and Queensland operations after announcing in February that annual production for this year would be reduced by 15 million tonnes.

“This involves some underground roster changes, the scaling back of some open pit mining activities, revisions to the product portfolio, deferring some projects, and optimising blending and inventory (stockpile) management across our operations,” a spokesperson said.

“Unfortunately, the underground mine’s move from a seven-day roster to a five-day roster will impact around 75 positions.

“We continue to investigate options for redeployment at our other operations, and support services are in place to assist employees and their families who are affected by these changes.”

The changes are expected to take effect from June.
