InDaily understands Alinta told workers at Northern and Playford today the proposed closure date March 31 will now be pushed out to May 8 2016.
In November, Alinta’s Leigh Creek coal operations closed, cutting about 240 workers.
The Australian Services Union has asked Alinta for a written explanation about the changed date and a meeting with senior management.
The ASU has also called for an urgent meeting of all unions to discuss the extension.
“Members may have concerns that this development could have an impact on the timing of redundancy payments or an ability to leave the business for future employment opportunities,” ASU secretary Joseph Scales said.
InDaily has contacted Alinta Energy for comment.
