ALL TRADE UNIONISTS, FAMILY & FRIENDS
Dubai Ports World is a stevedoring company that is currently escalating its current negotiations for a new Enterprise Agreement against its workforce.
The wharfies have commenced protected action in pursuit of their claims, and the company’s response is to lock the workers out. The members are engaging in further industrial action on Monday and the company has again chosen to lock us out from 10am through to 6am Tuesday. This is an important rally that will be crucial in sending a message to DP World that our hard won conditions are not negotiable.
DP World is attacking the Award that underpins our Enterprise Agreement and seeking to destroy justice and dignity in the workplace through HR bastardry.
We cannot allow any workers to go backwards on fundamental conditions. We must fight together as workers to ensure hard fought for conditions are maintained and improved.
The bosses, courts and governments are continuing their assault on workers and it is up to us to fight back. Maritime workers have long struggled for justice in our workplaces, across the community, and globally. We continue this tradition. We continue the legacy that has been handed to us. We know our responsibility.
The workers united will never be defeated.
