Hastings Deering reject deal to slash wages

WORKERS at Hastings Deering have rejected a deal put up by the company which would have seen their wages and conditions slashed, according to union officials.  

Hastings Deering put two separate agreements out to a vote of employees last week, despite there being a substantial number of clauses requiring further discussions, a union statement said.  

Both agreements were voted down by employees, the union said, with Hastings Deering yet to release the full breakdown of how workers voted.  

AMWU Queensland and Northern Territory secretary Rohan Webb said that by rejecting the company's deal workers had sent Hastings Deering a very clear message.
