FIFO Travel Update

Keeping fly-in fly-out workers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic has been a key focus for the Australian Workers’ Union.

AWU officials and delegates have been working since day one of the crisis to keep the mining and oil and gas sectors open for business.

Union officials and delegates have worked with governments and with the major employers over the new strict travel restrictions.

The AWU has negotiated new rosters that have kept thousands of people safely working, and secured compensation for workers who have been forced to move interstate.

There are signs that border restrictions might be easing in Western Australian in the coming weeks, but until then here is the latest information on FIFO.
