Oaky North Mine

Australian Workers Film Guide


This short video highlights the Oaky North Mine in Queensland, where 190 workers have been locked out of their workplace by mining giant Glencore for 100 days, a move impacting on workers, their families and the community. Nathan Lake, a miner on the picket line, reads out a letter written by his wife about the impact the lockout is having on their family. The miner then explains that the dispute is not about money, but about protecting conditions.
