Astonishing how BHP can claim force majeure at its Bowen Basin coal mines when they are not prepared to come to the table and bargain in good faith. Workers are taking protected action - the only action available to them - to settle a long protracted Agreement that includes roster agreements and the company wanting to replace workers with management that will lead to safety issues. Workers are being subjected to bullying and psychological tactics and even sacked. Coal has been stockpiles by contractors during stoppages so the supply of coal should not be an issue. However, because of this action by BHP it will force the price of coal up and is immorally and indecently wrong.
