DP World today have announced another update in that members of the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMMEU, MUA Division) have, despite continued efforts to reach an understanding, outlined a further series of work bans and stoppages up to and including Monday 4 December 2023.
This includes work-related bans (shift extensions and overtime bans, etc.), bans on working vessels, one to two hour closures each day, 24-hour bans on loading or unloading trucks or trains on nominated days in Brisbane, Fremantle, Sydney, and Melbourne.
DP World ongoing delays continue to have substantial impact on our operations, timeslots availability, the return of empty containers and turnaround times.
While we will do everything possible to manage all containers to the best of our ability, we will have no choice but have to pass on any additional costs incurred.
