To our Valued Customers,
We have received advice that the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) intend to restart Protected Industrial Action (PIA) at all four of DP World Australia (DPWA) terminals nationally.
The effect of the bans varies across terminals and advised PIA includes work stoppages, limited various bans on employees working in tasks above their normal grade, overtime, shift extensions, accepting late call-ins, and ceasing advanced or delayed start times.
Current stoppages and disruptions are scheduled as follows;
FREMANTLE – commencing Saturday 18 July
SYDNEY – commencing Saturday 18 July
MELBOURNE – commencing Tuesday 21 July
BRISBANE – commencing Tuesday 21 July
The above industrial action adds to the challenge in keeping container freight moving during COVID-19. Further complications have occurred in recent days due to weather events, port and landside congestion and vessel schedule alterations.
Please contact your BRi Customer Solutions Representative, should you require any further information.
Keeping you updated,
