The recent outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a dramatic impact on the Australian workforce and economy. Maritime workers will on the whole be continuing work throughout this health crisis, to keep these vital industries going.
The MUA is here to support our Members. Our highest priority is making sure your health, safety, and workplace rights are protected. We will hold employers, industry groups, and the government to account for keeping you safe and protecting your livelihoods.
The latest information is available here on our website and we will continue to provide updates to members as we receive them. If you have any questions or would like to share information about what’s happening in your workplace, please use the form to get in touch.
