UGM employ New Zealand’s Pike River Coal Miners

During 2011 UGM have actively sought to assist New Zealand’s Pike River Mineworkers gain employment in Australia. Our senior management has worked closely with both the Pike River workers, their local communities and our Australian clients to gain employment opportunities and assist in their transition to the Australian mining industry. We acknowledge the difficult situation and circumstances faced by our NZ mining friends and family and are extremely pleased to be able to assist in getting them back into the workforce. To date we have employed 16 Pike River miners for roles in both NSW and QLD coal mines and have further opportunities for those that are interested.
