I have just read the article of Pinetec closing down in Collie. I am the wife and mother of three workers. I am totally disgusted by what is happening. The boys have been in limbo for 10 months now and now they have been told they don't have a job anymore. They don't even know if they can get any jobs at Bassendean and there aren't any jobs in collie. There are 60 workers there and 90% of them are families so what the hell are they going to do. I have a lot of admiration and respect for Graeme Hedley and so does my family, he has done a lot for me, my husband and my 2 sons who also work there. I hope for my family's sake that the mill can be bought and they might be offered work there as we love living in Collie and don't want to leave. If Pinetec does come to a end I would like to wish Graeme and his family the very best for their future.
