Make the call
Time is running out for workers at New Hope’s New Acland Mine with almost half the workforce facing possible redundancies before the end of this year.
The company requires approvals for Stage 3 of operations by 1 September otherwise production at New Acland will reduce and approximately 150 workers will be made redundant.
New Hope first sought approvals for New Acland Stage 3, back in 2007.
12 years of uncertainty is long enough, particularly for New Hope’s loyal employees and the wider community who rely on New Hope and New Acland to make ends meet.
The State Government needs to act and support regional Queensland. It’s time they Make the call.
