NEOLINK Announcement – Maritime Union of Australia Approved Industrial Action at DP World Ports – Commencing the 18th of July – 16.7.20
Thursday 16th of July
Dear Valued Clients,
We received notice last night that the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) will restart government approved/protected industrial action at all four DP World Australia Ports nationally.
The industrial action adds to challenges the ports are experiencing nationally to keep container freight moving during COVID. Further complications have occurred in the past 48 hours as well due to vessels being delayed into port due to bad weather and landside congestion.
The below has been the initial details provided on the commencement dates and our Customer Operations Coordinators will be in touch for our import/export bookings that will be impacted:
FREMANTLE – commencing Saturday 18 July
MELBOURNE – commencing Tuesday 21 July
BRISBANE – commencing Tuesday 21 July
SYDNEY – commencing Saturday 18 July
As you can see in the above there are not any end dates provided by the MUA on this industrial action at this stage so we will keep you up to date as the situation unfolds.
