NEOLINK Announcement – MUA Industrial Action – Commencing in Sydney & Brisbane Ports – 17/1/19 @ 06:00

Tuesday 15, January 2019

Dear Valued Clients,

This morning we have been notified that the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) will be commencing industrial action from this Thursday at 6am.

The ports affected by the protected industrial action are Hutchinson’s at both Sydney and Brisbane ports, which will be significantly disrupting normal operations.

The action includes a range of stoppages, bans on overtime and shift extensions that will impact inbound/outbound vessels through Hutchinson’s Ports.

The MUA has stated that the industrial action is a result of a breakdown in negotiations over a new workplace agreement and that the disruption will be continuing for an indefinite period of time until the matter is resolved.

Your NEOLINK Account Manager will proactively be in contact to discuss the specific impact on a client by client basis.

As always; please feel free to reach out to Chris or I if you have any other questions.

 

Best regards,

 

Sean Crook

Director
