Annastacia Palaszczuk says alleged threatening behaviour by union protesters is unacceptable.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says alleged threatening behaviour by union protesters at a mine is unacceptable.

Several CFMEU protesters at the Oaky North Mine in central Queensland are under investigation for threatening and intimidating security staff and workers at the site, where 190 workers were locked out by owner Glencore earlier this year, The Courier Mail newspaper reports.

Ms Palaszczuk says it is "not acceptable for anyone to use threatening behaviour" but stopped short from agreeing to personally speak to the union about the alleged behaviour.
