Dear Valued Clients,

As you may be aware the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) has advised DP World Australia (DPWA) of its intention to commence industrial action at DPWA sites.

As of 1700 Friday afternoon we have been notified of protected industrial action at the following sites:

• Fremantle Terminal commencing 19 March 2019
• Port Botany Terminal commencing 22 March 2019
• Brisbane Terminal commencing 22 March 2019
• Melbourne Terminal commencing 23 March 2019

The protected industrial action advised to date includes bans on employees working in tasks above their normal grade, overtime, shift extensions, accepting late call ins and no advanced or delayed start times.  It also allows for one-hour and in the case of Fremantle 24 hour work stoppages.

What you need to know:
Minimising the customer disruption caused by the industrial action is our immediate priority. We are reviewing operational interim arrangements at our sites and will be working with vessel operators to minimise as far as practicable the impact to schedules.

Kind Regards,

SILA Customer Service
