The NSW Government is being urged to explore the fast-tracking of dredging for the proposed Port of Newcastle liquified natural gas import terminal, with the extracted river sand used to restore Stockton beach.

The Maritime Union of Australia said dredged sand from the Hunter River, which would have naturally joined Stockton beach before the port was constructed, offered a fast, cost-effective, and environmentally sustainable solution to address the current erosion crisis.

The maritime union has welcomed the granting of an exploration license for Australia’s first offshore wind project, saying it paves the way for the creation of thousands of quality regional jobs while also addressing the need for urgent action on climate change.

The approval of the exploration license by Energy Minister Angus Taylor follows months of pressure by the union, community groups and environmentalists who were concerned that it had been delayed by government inaction and ideological opposition to action on climate change.

Maritime unions have descended on Canberra today to speak to members and Senators about the need to protect coastal shipping and jobs on the coast.

The agenda includes the review if the Coastal Trading Act, Offshore Visas and the Seafarers Tax Offset, which is being debated in the lower house today.

The Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) and Australian Maritime Officers Union (AMOU) are concerned by comments made in question time yesterday by Transport Minister Warren Truss, who continues to mislead the Australian people as he pursues an ideological agenda in shipping.
