On the Waterfront….again

At its meeting on 10 August, the PSA’s Central Council gave full support to MUA (Maritime Union of Australia) demands that Hutchison Ports withdraw 97 dismissal notices issued to workers at Port Botany and Brisbane terminals and negotiate with the union over re-equipment and staffing.

Dismissal notices were issued by text message shortly before midnight on 6 August, effective immediately.

Most of the sacked workers were elected site committee members, shift delegates or health and safety committee representatives.

The MUA and supporters are at Hutchison wharves in Sydney and Brisbane.

The PSA is developing a roster to show support and encourages members to add their support and inspire other PSA members and other unions to fight to save jobs and call for no more sackings.
