In today's programme we are going to look at what is happening at one of Australia's oldest oil and gas fields Longford 20 kilometres from Sale in South Gippsland, Victoria. After more than 50 years the oil reserves are running out and the way Exxon Mobil subsidiarity Esso is dealing with worker negotiations is raising eyebrows. We will follow that with a look at Coates Hire Workers who are taking action around the country for better conditions at work. Many of these workers are isolated in small teams but despite this they can see the importance of solidarity in fighting owners of Coates Hire who are continuing to demand a pay freeze and to slash conditions.
