Union says dismissal unfair while Bechtel cites safety
UPDATE 6.30PM: UNIONS continued their battle against Bechtel on Tuesday morning (December 5, 2012).
The two were at loggerheads over another sacking on Monday.
Bechtel said the worker was sacked for a safety breach while working at heights.
CFMEU organiser Ben Loakes said the dismissal was unfair and was part of an effort by Bechtel to get rid of workers who object to the company's practices.
Bechtel Gladstone general manager Kevin Berg was adamant the worker had committed an unacceptable safety breach.
"A comprehensive investigation was performed as part of the process which included supervision and representatives from the workforce," he said.
EARLIER: UNIONS continued their protests against Bechtel this morning.
Gathered on Port Curtis Way, near the loading point for the workers' ferry to Curtis Island, the group said they were concerned that another worker had been sacked yesterday.
The dispute has ongoing for days now and there does not appear to be any end in sight.
