Australian Port Workers Are On Strike

- Feb 25, 2019-

It is reported that DP World Australia workers may strike at container terminals in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fremantle.


Due to strikes, the container terminal managed by DP World Australia may have an extended turnaround time.

The local Fair Work Commission has approved employees to conduct protected strikes. However, the committee requires workers to notify the company's management five days in advance of the strike.


The Australian Port Authority said: "The loading and unloading workers at the container terminals in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fremantle decided to strike, mainly because the management of DP World Australia announced that if the workers did not accept the company's proposal The demanding requirements will deprive them of income security insurance."


It is reported that nearly 2,000 docking and loading workers may participate in the strike activities, which will have a significant impact on the schedule.
