In a recent interview, miners at the coal mining company Asti told Ars Technic that they do not want to be part of a union that fights against the company.
Mining unions typically represent employees at mining companies who are being fired or who are fired without due process, which means they have no right to strike.
Asti also said that it does not want its members to be involved in the strike.
“The union doesn’t exist to fight against the management.
The union exists to fight for the interests of its members,” Asti said.
Astimas spokesperson also explained that Asti has no relationship with the Australian Mining Workers Union (AMWU), a trade union that represents miners.
AMWU is a major union in the Australian mining industry, but its members are largely self-employed, according to the AMW
