MUA INDUSTRIAL ACTION AT DP WORLD TERMINALS
TCF International's Member body, Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australia Peak Shippers Association (APSA) have been in contact with DP World senior management in order to update members on the latest on the protected industrial action continuing around the DP World terminals nationally.
Following is an update advice received today from Nicolaj Noes (DP World Australia Executive VP - Oceania) on the current status at DP World terminals, with industrial action continuing until October 30th 2023:
Dear Valued Client,
I write to provide an important update on the current protected industrial action being undertaken by the CFMMEU-MUA DIVISION and its impact on our operations.
Over the last six months of Enterprise Bargaining, we've approached negotiations in the spirit of collaboration and good faith. Our stance has been flexible, making concessions where they align with the broader interests of our business, our customers, and the Australian community.
However, the CFMMEU-MUA DIVISON’s current stance has posed challenges. Recent discussions held in September 2023 brought limited progress. While we had scheduled further meetings for 17-19 October 2023, their continuation is contingent on the cessation of protected industrial actions, a condition the Union has not yet agreed to.
Our priority remains clear: serving the Australian public and ensuring service disruptions are kept to a minimum. In the spirit of transparency and community interest, we implore the CFMMEU-MUA DIVISION to engage in constructive dialogue. While we recognise the right of the CFMMEU-MUA DIVISION to take industrial action, its repercussions are felt by our hardworking employees and the wider Australian community.
