Firstly get the facts right. The strike that started on Friday was due to the letters people received that if they didn't sign for motelling that they would be evicted. And that we wished to negotiate our non-union agreement with various issues that we have had since the start of the job. On Monday we had a worker meeting outside the gates, unions weren't involved as they have been tongue-tied, and FWW & Woodside didn't want to negotiate and they thought a back to work order would scare us. So we said we would meet back on Wednesday morning. We did however on Monday we had a peaceful march through the town of Karratha to show that we are serious about this issue and won't stand down. Now come wednesday we have had our meeting and yes we will meet again on Saturday. This is 1000 workers we are talking about here, most with families and financial commitments. Just another thing Mr Barnett: stop speaking in front of the camera down in perth. Come up here and say it in front of us. Also Premier of WA, you tell me what TA [trades assistant] at Pluto is earning 150k a year? I would like to meet this "person" and apply for his job, because there is no way a TA can earn this much up here. The unions have had NOTHING to do with the strike, this is purely workers fighting for workers rights. Over the weekend the unions got an order put on them to say nothing or face huge fines, which they have said.........
