Hundreds of Gujarat NRE workers gathered at the Fraternity Club this morning for a union meeting, hoping for advice on their current financial plight.
The workforce has not been paid for nearly three weeks and do not expect to be paid before October 16.
This morning's meeting was attended by several local MPs including Ryan Park, Sharon Bird, Stephen Jones and Gino Mandarino, on behalf of Anna Watson, who all expressed their concern for the situation and offered their support.
Representatives from AusHelp, which is designed to help miners deal with stress, along with financial advisers from several credit unions and banks were also on hand.
The mining union told workers it was doing everything it could for the workers.
The CFMEU has managed to secure long service leave funds to distribute to staff.
Rhys Brett, general manager of mines at Gujarat NRE, appeared on behalf of the company.
He read out a letter, written by chairman Arun Jagatramka, expressing his sympathy.
Mr Jagatramka noted he had worked hard to try and avoid the company's current financial situation.
