The New South Wales Australian Workers Union president, Mick Madden, is calling on white goods manufacturer Electrolux to convince the public of its Orange, South Wales, Australia factory's long-term viability.

Mr. Madden says he fears the Electrolux workforce will several more cucts.

Mr. Madden wants the company to seek voluntary redundancies rather than sacking 200 workers from the company's small refrigeration division.

He says he has been told that further job cuts could be a reality.

"The worrying factor was their reason for saying, 'No, there wouldn't be voluntary redundancies this time' then there would be forced redundancies in the main factory at a later date," he said. "That signaled to us that this is not the end of job cuts in this factory, there's going to be more."

Mr. Madden will ask the Orange City Council to host a community forum on the future of the Electrolux factory. (ABC News Online)
