Raw chicken, green calamari and mouldy sandwiches?

July 26, 2022

Have you experienced dodgy food while staying at camp? Have you come across or been given green calamari, mouldy sandwiches or raw chicken?

The Western Mine Workers Alliance – our joint venture covering iron ore miners in the Pilbara – is fighting to improve camp conditions in the Pilbara, including addressing food quality in camps after hearing about some of these doozies.

Food provided in WA camps include raw chicken and mouldy cheese.

Have you been exposed to unsanitary or unacceptable food? Send us your photos of dodgy camp food at [email protected].

If you work in WA and stay in a mining camp, please complete our survey on camp standards and send in your examples of dodgy, dirty and unacceptable camp conditions via the link.
