DP World Australia (Port Botany) Industrial Action

Dear Valued Clients,

We have received advice that DP World Port Botany operations did not operate overnight with the latest update being that 1100 slots have been cancelled.

An official DP World customer notices advises the following:

“An employee at the DP World Australia Port Botany Terminal was terminated on Tuesday for breach of contract.

Subsequently, some questions were asked about safety, which prompted the attendance of SafeWork officials to the site yesterday.

SafeWork confirmed that DP World Australia continues to provide a safe workplace.

Disappointingly, our terminal has not operated overnight. The company is pursuing all options available this morning and we intend to have full operations resumed at Port Botany as quickly as possible.

We will provide regular updates to inform you of further developments at the earliest possible opportunity.

Our customers are important to us and we appreciate your patience as we work through this issue.”

We also note a reference to the dispute on the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) web site – refer HERE

Kind Regards,

SILA Customer Service
