King Island Shipping Submission - MUA Tasmania


The following link is a submission that the Tasmanian Branch have put forward regarding King Island Shipping, an inquiry was called by Ruth Forrest MLC seeking submissions into the Shipping and Freight future of the island.


The submission states the MUA’s position and recommendations for the future of King Island Shipping after close to 12 months of nothing short of a debacle at the hand of the Hodgman Liberal Government.


The submission was sent to the Tasmanian Legislative Council.

Maritime Union of Australia members always happy to help

Each year wharfies from Toll Burnie, seafarers and maritime workers from across the state come together for an MUA Anzac Day Golf Tournament to raise money for a local charity whilst also having a bit of fun.
This year was no different, once the frost has melted and Anzac Day services were coming to a close, sixty or so MUA members gathered in Burnie for the annual MUA Golf Day.


This year the dollars were flowing rapidly to help those doing it tougher than most; members raised $2750 to give to City Mission’s can/ food drive.



MUA members and Golf day organisers Andrew Spinks and Bill Jongschaap joined Alisha Bull, MUA Tasmania Deputy Secretary to make a presentation to the City Mission team in Burnie. (Pictured here with Scott from City Mission)
