Oppose Individual Contracts:
Support the BHP workers
The Central Committee Executive of the Communist Party of Australia extends its support to the workers and their Unions in struggle against the BHP's attempt to impose individual contracts in its iron ore operations. The success so far of the Unions' campaign both legally and industrially, to win the right to negotiate collectively is a victory for all workers. There is still a real danger of workers being forced onto individual contracts by BHP which is still pursuing its aggressive path through legal appeal. This will continue while industrial legislation allows for individual contracts. The CC Executive calls for a united front of workers and their unions to ensure that legislation allowing individual contracts is repealed both Federally and in each State.
