To: CENTENNIAL COAL - PAY OLDER WORKERS WHAT THEY ARE OWED.
Centennial Coal: Have a Heart
After being denied up to 64 weeks pay in retrenchment entitlements for more than 18 months, 13 workers from Centennial Coal will finally get paid. This is an important victory against discrimination and corporate misbehavior -- even though these workers never should have had to put up such a hard fight to get what they were rightfully owed. In addition to the petition on Coworker.org, this fight also involved actions in the Federal Court, the Australian Human Rights Commission and the Fair Work Commission.
