The dispute against the global giant Esso/Exxon in the small South Eastern Australian town of Longford has now been going on for over 250 days. The company is attempting to use subcontracting and sham employment contracts to slash the wages and conditions of hundreds of workers. There has been support from workers all around Australia, and while the picket line outside the Esso/Exxon is solid, more needs to be done to involve other workers and workplaces. Against global companies like Exxon, co-ordinated industrial actions with other Exxon sites around the world would be most effective in increasing the power and effectiveness of workers’ actions.
