We have received the below notification from Patrick Terminals:
As per our correspondence on Monday, Patrick Terminals applied to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) seeking to terminate industrial action being undertaken by the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) due to the significant economic harm that the action was causing.
As part of this process, Patrick Terminals and the MUA attended a long conciliation session this morning at the Fair Work Commission in an attempt to resolve these matters before the hearing date.
The outcome of this conciliation session is that the MUA have today agreed to provide an undertaking to the Fair Work Commission that all notified and ongoing industrial action will be withdrawn effective from this afternoon, with no further action to be notified before 10 December 2021.
Our focus is now on ensuring our terminals return to normal on-schedule operations as quickly as possible and we are focused on supporting Australia's economic recovery.
