Stop Work Call at Australian Ports

October 8, 2014

A 4-hours stop work meeting has been formally notified by the MUA at the PB Towage operations at the ports of Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Newcastle on Friday 10 October.

This comes after PB Towage and the respective maritime unions failed to reach a settlement on the renewal of the PB Towage Enterprise Agreement.

Negotiations are continuing, with the unions due to report back through the Fair Work Commission on Monday 13 October.

PB Towage advise they are pursuing all avenues to avert the stoppage on Friday, but it looks set to proceed as follows:
- BRISBANE: 1100–1500 hours
- SYDNEY/MELBOURNE/NEWCASTLE: 1200–1600 hours
