    A concerning time for Southland's Tiwai aluminium smelter employees

    A concerning time for Southland's Tiwai aluminium smelter employees


    Rio Tinto, the owner of the country's largest electricity consumer, is considering closure of the Bluff plant as part of a strategic review.

    E Tu Union Southland organiser, Trevor Hobbs, says it's tough news for employees.

    He says it's unsettling working in an environment where you don't know if you'll have a job this time next week.
