Forgacs braced for three strikes

FORGACS Engineering has been hit with industrial action that could last until Saturday morning.

Australian Manufacturing Workers Union organiser Daniel Wallace said the union had notified Forgacs of three consecutive 24-hour strikes starting at 6am on Wednesday.

Mr Wallace said the company’s latest offer would be put to a mass meeting at Hexham Park.

If the offer was accepted, the industrial action would end after 24hours but a ‘‘no’’ vote would result in the three consecutive strikes.

Forgacs chief executive Lindsay Stratton said the company had lifted its offer and was disappointed the union was proceeding with industrial action when a decision could have been made at a workplace ballot next week.
