The Australian Maritime Officers Union has agreed to hold off taking industrial action against employer Poseidon Sea Pilots at the Port of Brisbane for at least another week.
The AMOU and PSP met at the Fair Work Commission on Friday 4 August to negotiate an enterprise bargaining agreement for PSP’s Brisbane workforce.
FWC meetings on Friday closely followed the pilots’ unanimous vote of support for protected industrial action in the form of work stoppages, overtime bans, and several other bans.
Although the outcome of the ballot gave pilots the all-clear to take industrial action, negotiations were progressing well (according to the union and employer) and pilotage in Brisbane remained business-as-usual.
But negotiations aren’t over yet; the AMOU and PSP are due to return to the FWC again on 11 August to continue discussions.
