The Maritime Union of Australia has made the following demands on governments and employers during this global health crisis.



Published: 19 May 2020

JobKeeper is a wage subsidy program available to assist employers to keep their employees on during the COVID-19 outbreak.
A number of employers in the Maritime Industry are eligible for the Job Keeper scheme. The Union encourages you to sign-up if the company provides the relevant forms. The Union will work with respective employers on how the Job Keeper payments will be applied.

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the May Day SA Collective has cancelled both the May Day 2020 Dinner and the May Day 2020 March due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

While we cannot celebrate May Day this year with the usual rallying and revelry, the SA May Day Collective are inviting everyone to join in on Facebook for some online celebrations:

In the midst of this pandemic, employers have conveniently used COVID-19 as a mechanism to suspend and stall enterprise bargaining, not communicate with the Union or use COVID-19 as a measure to try and reduce terms and conditions or offer negative pay increases. Despite in some instances companies benefiting from the pandemic or not being impacted.
To that end the SA Branch continues to agitate for respective companies to come back to the bargaining table and continue negotiations.

The Morrison government has heard the Australian union movement’s call to ensure that all workers are covered by a wage subsidy program during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Federal Government finally introduced the $130 billion JobKeeper scheme to assist employers to keep their employees on during the COVID-19 outbreak.
A number of employers in the Maritime Industry are eligible for the Job Keeper scheme. The Union encourages you to sign-up if the company provides the relevant forms. The Union will work with respective employers on how the Job Keeper payments will be applied.

Since the COVID 19 pandemic the MUA National Executive, which includes Branch Secretary Jamie Newlyn, has been meeting weekly to keep a watching brief, ready for an agile and adaptive response where required.

We are demanding that the Morrison Government guarantee two weeks paid special leave for all workers.
Working people need to know they don’t have to make the decision between going to work sick, or self-isolating and not being able to pay their bills.
Stopping the spread of coronavirus is vital, but Scott Morrison’s response so far has been dangerously inadequate.
The government must ensure that all workers have paid special leave - if you’re sick and don’t have sick leave entitlements or if you’re forced to self-quarantine.

Why is this important?

Qube EBA -  Part A report backs  - Whyalla & Port Lincoln
 



Published: 27 Feb 2020

This grain receiver and exporter between Whyalla and Port Lincoln (Cowell) have ramped up production to export grain as early as March 4. The loading will be via a transhipment operation on a self-propelled 3250 tonne self-discharger called the MV Lucky Eyre. The MUA has made numerous attempts to meet with T-Ports which have been denied even after visiting the site on two occasions. The MUA have serious concerns about the operation, notably the stevedoring of the Lucky Eyre and the transhipment to ocean going vessels.
