    Industrial action at BHP Billiton Limited's (ASX:BHP) Queensland mines is heating up as workers fight for more job security and pay rises. 

    According to Fairfax Media more than 400 BHP workers have started strikes at the global miner’s coking coal mines after failed talks between the company and its employees.  

    A union official has told the paper that around 3,500 workers were gearing up to strike yesterday and on June 18 at sites owned by BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance in Queensland's Bowen Basin.

    Fairfax says the strikes could force already high coal prices to climb even further.

    In the first half of its 2011 financial year, BHP Billiton reported a net profit of $10.5 billion.
