Patrick Terminals Industrial Action in Sydney, Brisbane & Fremantle


Dear Valued Customers


Please see a further update regarding current industrial action by the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) at various Patrick Terminals 


Patrick Terminals has been served with a number of "Protected Industrial Action (PIA)" notifications in the past week from the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) and we have collated a summary of all current notifications. An additional notification was received last night for Fremantle and this has now been included below.

Patrick Terminals - Sydney

  • A ban on overtime and shift extensions at Port Botany (Sydney) from 6am Thursday 20th May 2021 for 14 days finishing 6am Thursday 3rd June 2021.

Patrick Terminals - Brisbane

  • Zero overtime or non-rostered work commencing from Friday 28 May 2021 and finishing Sunday 30 May 2021 

Patrick Terminals - Fremantle

  • A ban on non-rostered employee attendance from Tuesday 25th May 2021 and finishing Tuesday 8 June 2021.

Patrick Terminals - Melbourne

  • No notifications to date 

These stoppages will cause delays and disruptions across the ports throughout the week & snowball into the coming weeks.

Our dedicated Transport Team will continue to review the potential impact of these stoppages and will work with the Shipping Lines and Port Authorities to ensure that disruptions are kept to a minimum. We will keep you updated on changes and new dates for container availability.


Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to call your BRi Customer Service Executive or the Transport Department.

As always thank you so much for your ongoing support.


Keeping you updated, 


BRi Transport Team
