Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU) says it had no prior warning about job cuts announced by a Newcastle train manufacturer yesterday.
More than 40 jobs are set to go at United Goninan's Broadmeadow operation, mainly in roles like engineering.
The company says the global financial crisis has prompted the redundancies and workers will get their full entitlements.
Jim O'Neill from the AMWU says the job cuts took him by surprise.
"We've got an agreement with the company, we were aware that there was a review going on generally in that area but we'd been given no prior notice of the announcement," he said.
"I think it's disappointing from a union perspective and I also think it's disappointing from an employee perspective."
