The Union says meeting with Alcoa again over strike at Australian aluminium project

2018-09-26 15:26:55 EAST UNITED ALUMINUM LTD

According to foreign news on September 26, the trade union of Alcoa's Western Australia aluminum project said that it will meet with the employers on Wednesday to find a solution to the strike that lasted more than six weeks. Last week, Alcoa adjusted its salary proposal.

The union workers of the two alumina plants and the three bauxite mines began to strike on August 8. They were worried that the new agreement had no job security.

The timing of the strike was also sensitive, which coincided with the tight supply of alumina. As a result, aluminum prices rose by 20% in one month.
