Port Waratah Announces a Reduction of Roles

Port Waratah announced to its workforce today a further 32 redundancies across its business.

The reductions include nine contractor, nine staff employee and 14 operators and trades roles.

Port Waratah CEO, Hennie du Plooy said the decision is consistent with the Hunter Valley coal industry’s focus on improving efficiency and productivity in response to current market conditions.

“We recognise the impact of changes like this on people and therefore don’t make these decisions lightly,” said Mr du Plooy.

“Industry demand for Port Waratah’s coal handling services remains high but it is important that we position our business to support the sustainability of the coal chain as a whole,” he added.
