MUA members are a generous bunch and this charitable spirit was exhibited in true MUA-style last week when delegates attending the 2014 Tugboat Conference pieced together more than $1000 to help a three-year-old boy.

Published: 22 Jul 2014

More than 35 tugboat workers from around the country have descended on the MUA’s specialised training facility at St Georges Basin to kick-off the 2014 Towage Conference.

Joining the Australian contingent was a special guest from Seattle - America’s Inland Boatmen’s Union President - Alan Cote.

Cote gave delegates a more international perspective on the issues the towage sector faces in North America.
