Industrial action on Friday, October 3rd at the Port of Brisbane

The Maritime of Union of Australia (MUA) has advised it will take limited industrial action on Friday, October 3 at the Port of Brisbane.

All members of the MUA employed by DP World Brisbane will engage in a stoppage of four hours duration from 11am until 3pm, and a stoppage of eight hours from 3pm until 11pm.

In a statement, DP World Australia said it strongly disagrees with this action taken by the MUA and believes it is “neither required nor deserved”.

“This action is disruptive to our customers and to the broader transport and logistics industry, which depend on efficient and reliable waterside operation through our terminals,” DP World said.

“DP World Australia believes both parties would be better served to continue negotiations in good faith.

“We urge the MUA to withdraw their threat of protected action and return to the negotiating table.”
