Workers Stage Protest at PNG LNG

Reported on the NBC News Facebook Page, 22/08/2011

Workers at the PNG LNG project plant site at Lealea are staging a protest, raising concerns about their pay rates. Many of workers at portion 152, outside Port Moresby, are landowners who have been employed by contractors and sub-contractors in the project.They were up as early as five o'clock this morning, and blocked the gates of the construction site in a sit-in protest, over their alleged unfair treatment by their employers.

They demanded that those responsible come down to address their grievances. Police arrived at the scene to ensure peace, and tried to instill some understanding with the workers, but to no avail. A spokesman, Robert Kauga, speaking on NBC's Malolo program this afternoon, says all gates to the plant site are locked
