In October 2012 the LNP State Govt overturned a 30 year ban on Uranium mining.
In spite of ongoing issues about safety and waste, the Government has ploughed ahead without consultation and without community involvement. This is a toxic betrayal of trust.
The ETU will join with community groups and other unions to fight against this toxic industry.
