Survey shows resource workers want FIFO, local options

A SURVEY of 2300 of the state's resource industry workers has shown workers want to be able to choose whether they live in resource communities, or be long distance commuters.

In a submission to the Queensland Parliamentary Inquiry into fly-in, fly-out and other long-distance commuting work practices, the Queensland Resources Council said after consulting the workers themselves, the message was clear - both options should be available to attract the best employees.

QRC chief executive Michael Roche said the concept of 100 percent FIFO mines was a furphy.
