Huntly coal miners end strike

huntly_powerFour hundred workers at Solid Energy's Huntly East and nearby Rotowaro coalmines have voted to accept an 8.5% pay increase after a month of industrial action.

They will return to work on Tuesday.

The offer was similar to one rejected last week but removed clawbacks which would have left workers worse off, said Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union spokesman Rob Egan.

The base pay rate for miners and maintenance staff would increase from $78,832 to $85,600.

About 730 workers at Solid Energy's West Coast mines at Stockton and Spring Creek were due to vote on a new offer on Monday night.
