Workers at Anglo American's Callide coal mine walk off over unpaid wages

About 21 Civil Australia Group workers at Anglo American Plc's Callide coal mine in Queensland, Australia, walked off thesite March 22 allegedly over unpaid wages for more than three weeks' work, The Observer (Gladstone) reported April 5.

Civil Australia Group has been contracted for some work at theAnglo American-operated mine.

Selwyn Lampard, one of the workers, said the company owes himabout A$9,000 in wages and six months superannuation, but his boss would not respondwhen contacted.

"Then at lunch on Monday (March 21) we got a call from wherewe were staying, telling us we had to pack up our stuff and leave because our billwasn't settled," Lampard added.

Anglo American declined to comment on the situation but AustralianWorkers' Union organizer Tony Beers urged the company to pay the workers and "sortout the issues with Civil Australia Group."

"They have done the work on good faith and Anglo Americanhas benefited from that work and continues to," Beers said.

Recently, Anglo American was selling its 70% interest in the Foxleigh metallurgical coal mine in Queenslandto a consortium led by Taurus Fund Management.
