Rail Operations at DP World Sydney

Dear Valued Clients,

As you are aware, the CFMMEU is currently staging Protected Industrial Action at all DP World Australia (DPWA) terminals.

In addition to the terminal stoppages which continue to challenge DPWA, the CFMMEU has placed bans on employees working in tasks above their normal grade, overtime, shift extensions, accepting late call-ins and no advanced or delayed start times. These bans restrict the ability of the business to deliver the required labour allocation.

As a result, DPWA has been forced to close rail operations at our Sydney terminal from 1400 Friday 29 March (today) to 0600 Monday 1 April.

We recognise the impact that these cancellations have on rail operators, your operations and customers. However, we hope that you will appreciate that the impact of these bans and the limitations on our operations is dynamic and changes rapidly.

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.

Kind Regards,

SILA Customer Service
