Ergon jobs fizzle out as employees face redundancies

FOUR Mackay Ergon Energy workers could be made redundant towards the end of the year.

They are among 33 workers who face redundancy as the company privatises positions and centralises dispatch functions to Rockhampton.

The Electrical Trades Union's electrical supply industry co-ordinator Stuart Traill said this axing of jobs would inevitably increase response times.

He said this brought the company's total of slashed jobs to 1690 since March 2012.

An Ergon Energy spokesman said staff affected by the proposals had been briefed this week.

"Also staff members are covered by the 'no forced redundancy' provisions of their enterprise agreement so, if this goes ahead, they can choose to accept a redundancy or seek redeployment within the business," he said.
