The bosses — led by Shipping Australia, the representative of foreign shippers — are standing in the way of a fair safety code. At the last minute, they blocked a code that will save lives and make conditions safer — so our comrades can come home to their families after work, safe and sound.
We must act now to ensure that safety on the waterfront is secured.
National Day of Action
MUA rank & file and concerned members of the community are coming together on Tuesday 30 October to demand a national stevedoring code of practice.
It is a basic right for a worker to be safe on the job. Let’s rally to send a strong message to employers.
