At 3pm today [Sunday 15th February 2015] Chairman of the Landowner Association – Yulai – stormed the TGM General Manager’s with a long handle axe and chased the GM out of his office.
Prior to breaking and entering the GMS Office, Mr Gusi forcefully entered the IPI catering operating bulkstore and forced it closed.
He destroyed the freezers and other white goods inside and headed for the GMS office.
If the GM was hurt in this act, it’s unknown but unconfirmed reports from the mine site confirms the night shift workers have been forced to stay off work. Which has been actioned.
Production at the mine site has been suspended as TGM comes under siege all because of one man – Mr George Gusi.
The reason of the attack is unknown but few informants did mention George Gusi is unhappy with TGM because his food stock for his store has not been airlift from Pom to TGM mine site for 4 days.
But others believe Mr Gusi is frustrated with the TGM Management due to the fact that Management had him removed from the campsite and rid him of previledges that came with campsite accommodation.
Amongst a host of “demands” Mr Gusi verbally aired was..
1. Removal of the TGM GM
2. Immediate solution to unsolved issues at mine site,
3. Intervention from the National Government to resolve outstanding issues between TGM LOS and TGM.
Generally reaction from the TGM workforce is that of confusion.
No one knows why Mr Gusi has done what he has done.
Situation at the mine site has been normalized but the GM is shocked after this surprise attack from the LO Chairman with an axe.
It was obvious Mr Gusi was under liquor and as such all he was saying was alcohol influenced.
More updates to follow.
