We have received an update from the DP World on the protected industrial action formally advised by the CFMMEU – MUA Division through to 6 November 2023.

Impacts include:

  • Bans on the performance of overtime, shift extensions, upgrades and the deployment of crane gangs;
  • Rolling stoppages of work of various durations (one or two hours at a time) depending on the Terminal – there are no road or vessel operations during these stoppages;
  • SYDNEY – ban on loading / unloading trucks & trains (06:00 27/10 to 06:00 28/10) – all road & rail operations will be stopped during these hours and no VBS slots will be available for booking an hour prior to the work stoppage;
  • SYDNEY – 24 hours work stoppage (06:00 30/10 to 06:00 31/10); and
  • SYDNEY / BRISBANE / FREMANTLE – ban on loading / unloading trucks & trains (06:00 3/11 TO 06:00 4/11).

In the case of Brisbane, the two-hour rolling stoppages are impacting Old Yard operations and the receival & delivery of Reefer containers.  All general cargo receival and delivery continues through the Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs) during the rolling two-hour stoppages.

We will continue to monitor the situation and as always, we will notify you of any impacted deliveries.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
