MUA Industrial Action
3rd September, 2020
Patrick Terminals has announced that the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) has advised Patrick of Protected Industrial Action in each of its container terminals in Australia commencing from Friday, 4th September for an indefinite period in Sydney, Brisbane and Fremantle, and from 7th September in Melbourne.
The actions include various work bans on ships and in the terminals, and work stoppages of various lengths of time depending on the terminal.
These work bans and stoppages will have a negative flow-on effect to landside logistics operations in terms of both full imports and full exports, as well as empty container management and the opportunities for empty container evacuations by shipping lines.
If you have any queries or questions regarding your current shipments, please reach out to your SCC customer service representative at email@example.com
