Australia Ports: National Strikes Cause Disruptions
July 9, 2019
Wharfies started national strikes at DP World terminals across Australia on Monday, July 8, 2019. Around 1,800 wharfies walked off the job for 48 hours at the Brisbane terminal and workers at Fremantle, Melbourne, and Sydney will begin strikes later this week for safety, dignity, and job security in the workplace.
