Industrial action threatened in Sydney DP World Australia today received notice that the Maritime Union of Australia will lead protected action at our Sydney terminals next week. The MUA has threatened limited industrial action on Wednesday, 1 October in Sydney in support of their Enterprise Agreement demands. DP World Australia strongly disagrees with this action and believes this action 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 the two largest ports in the country. 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. We will do everything possible to minimise impact to our customers. Dialogue is continuing at the highest levels and we are doing all we can to avert this action.
