BHP Wage Deals Scrapped As Unions Win Fair Work Fight

Mining giant BHP has lost a legal fight with trade unions over the pay and conditions affecting thousands of workers after the industrial umpire ruled two wage deals were not struck lawfully.

The Fair Work Commission's full bench has quashed two 2018 agreements spanning BHP's new "operations services" subsidiaries, which has moved thousands of contract and casual jobs from outsourced labour-hire arrangements to permanent in-house positions.
