RIN gears up for METS sector representation at two upcoming public hearings

Resource Industry Network (RIN) will represent its members and the broader industry this week at the public hearing for the Joint Standing Committee on Trade and Investment Growth's Inquiry into the prudential regulation of investment in Australia's export industries.

Speaking on behalf of RIN, chair David Hartigan and general manager Dean Kirkwood will address the public hearing being held this Friday in Canberra, via teleconference.

The committee announced the inquiry and report after a recommendation from Minister for Resources, Water and Northern Australia Keith Pitt earlier this year.

The inquiry will help shed light on the growing concern around insurance accessibility and affordability for businesses in the coal mining supply chain.

As an organisation that represents the interests of the resources supply chain in the Mackay, Isaac, Whitsunday region, RIN appreciates the opportunity to address the hearing and engage with government in conversations around the practices of insurance, banking and superannuation companies in an effort to introduce policies that support a business' ability to receive insurance and loans in a way that is fair.

RIN director Tim Magoffin will also join Dean Kirkwood at a public hearing for the Senate Select Committee on Job Security on July 13, focusing on the mining sector and labour hire arrangements.

The committee will report on the impact of insecure or precarious employment on the economy, wages, social cohesion, and workplace rights and conditions.
