Stevedore Stoppages - Urgent resolution required to salvage our international trade


Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) engaged with DP World and Patrick stevedore executives in relation to the unauthorised industrial action that took place at their Melbourne operations on Friday 8 December 2017.

FTA / APSA will again also be meeting VICT today.

In separate industrial action, we also note the Port Authority of New South Wales advice that the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) have called another 24 hour stoppage commencing 0600 on Wednesday 13 December 2017.

Our advocacy will continue with ongoing media exposure seeking government intervention and resolution via appropriate legal channels - please refer to the latest commentary below via this link,
