EPMU joins Pike River families to mark fourth anniversary

19 November, 2014

Representatives of the Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union are proud to stand with the Pike River families to mark four years since 29 men lost their lives.

“This is a particularly solemn day given the recent announcements of Solid Energy abandoning its efforts to re-enter the mine, and a civil case proceeding against former CEO Peter Whittall is an important next step,” says Bill Newson, EPMU national secretary.

“We stand with the miners’ families and their community.”
