DP World Industrial Action – FTA Update 33

Dear Valued Customers & Partners,

Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) continue to be in contact with DP World senior management in terms of thy latest information on the Protected Industrial Action (PIA) impacting their container terminals nationally.

DP World have outlined advice received from the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) division of the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMMEU) in terms of withdrawing some partial work bans and stoppages and the continuation of other listed PIA.
Despite the withdrawal of some bans, there are still multiple protected industrial actions that remain ongoing, including *partial work bans, associated with the PIA for the period Monday 15 January to Tuesday 23 January 2024.

* DP World has reiterated it’s position remains unchanged in terms of non-acceptance of partial work bans.

SILA would like to remind our clients that transport companies have communicated that surcharges for weekends, public holidays and after-hours will be applied as they strive to retrieve containers within their allotted free time.

These bans & stoppages continue to significantly impact our services, and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this period. Our team is committed to minimising disruptions and ensuring the smoothest operations possible. We will keep you updated on any further developments.

We acknowledge the potential impact of these disruptions; however, please be advised that SILA will not assume liability for any additional charges arising from these industrial actions.

Thank you for your continued trust and partnership and should you have any questions or concerns, kindly reach out to our dedicated team!
