We have been informed by Freight and Trade Alliance the Maritime Union of Australia will proceed with protected industrial action at Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) in Melbourne.
The stoppages will consist of:
12-hour stoppage starting at 00.01 on Saturday 1 May
12-hour stoppage starting at 00.01 on Monday 3 May
At this stage we are unable to assess impact on deliveries, however, please expect there to be delays to vessels moving through VICT and an impact on export receiving and import deliveries.
Earlier this year protected industrial action was called off prior to a meeting at Fair Work.
Our transport teams will keep you updated as quickly as possible to any impact and our reporting will identify changes to vessel schedules as reported terminals and carriers through their various platforms.
