National Update – DP World Australia Industrial Action

Dear Valued Clients,

Further to our previous notice outlining operational implications (including rail) at Port Botany, we have received the following details from DP World Australia outlining broader national implications associated with the ongoing industrial action.

Ongoing Protected Industrial action at DP World Australia

Since the CFMMEU commenced Protected Industrial Action (PIA) at DP World Australia (DPWA) terminals on 19 March, we have struggled to secure sufficient labour and skills required to meet the needs of our customers.

We are cognisant that the ongoing bans and stoppages continue to impact our shipping line customers and supply chain partners.

We can confirm that we are in regular contact with all stevedore operators to secure any and all available capacity at their terminals across the four ports. We also continue to explore options to change vessel rotations and the elimination of port calls.

As you are aware the operating environment changes regularly, often multiple times a day.  The team at DPWA continue to work tirelessly to manage what is an extremely fluid environment and provide plans for vessels calling at our terminals.

Below are the upcoming dates we have received notice for PIA:
