BREAKING: 40 jobs cut at Christmas Creek

MacMahon Contracting has dropped 40 staff from their crews on the FMG Christmas Creek operation.

The employees have come from across all operations, including truck operators and maintenance crews.

A spokesperson for MacMahon said the cutback was due to a normal reduction in work levels required by FMG.

“If Fortescue give us another mine plan, then we will certainly be ramping up employment again,” he said.
