Liberal MP George Christensen has arranged meetings with BMA to discuss the issue of 100 per cent FIFO staffing.

The member for Dawson said the only way to change the 100 per cent FIFO operations was to negotiate directly with the company.

Christensen has scheduled a meeting with BMA for October 8 to try to arrange for local work forces to participate at the Daunia and Caval Ridge coal mines.

A BMA spokeswoman said they shared the member’s passion to support local communities.

“We regularly engage with our stakeholders and look forward to future discussions with Mr Christensen,” she said.

“A residential, drive-in-drive-out or FIFO workforce all have a role to play in the resources industry in generating wealth for the Queensland economy.”
