AAP has reported that jobs could be lost at two New South Wales coal mines belonging to Jindal Steel and Power.
Wollangong Coal, which is controlled by the Indian industrial giant, says it is in talks with workers at the Russell Vale and Wongawilli coal mines as it looks to cut costs.
“We are currently conducting an organizational and operational review which may result in some touch decisions,” Jasbir Singh, the chairman of Wollongong Coal, is quoted as saying.
The review is expected to be completed in June. The company is also waiting for approval from the New South Sales government to continue longwall mining at the Russell Vale site.
Jindal Steel and Power recently invested AU$ 270 million in the mines.
