MUA Dispute Impacting Rail Operations

Dear Valued Clients,

Please be noted of the following:

DP World Australia

We have been advised by DP World Australia that rail operations will not operate from 2pm tomorrow Thursday 28 March 2019 until 6am Friday 29 March 2019.

These closures are a result of continuing industrial action. These types of events are increasing in regularity and speak to the seriousness of the situation. Particularly affected are NSW regional exporters dependent on rail services to the Port.

We will continue to work with DP World Australia to minimise disruptions and to ensure that the industry is aware of developments as they occur.

Patrick Stevedores

A reminder to members that the MUA will be holding a stop work meeting at Patrick Fisherman Island terminal tomorrow at Thursday 28 March 2019 from 7am until 11am. The terminal will cease yard/ship operations during this time.

We have been assured by Patrick management that this is not related to the ongoing Enterprise Agreement dispute currently affecting DP World Australia and Hutchison.

Kind Regards,

SILA Customer Service
