Svitzer Tugs Protected Industrial Action Suspended

Monday 23/02/22

The Fair Work Commission has suspended a series of strikes by Svitzer tugboat masters.

The decision terminates seven work stoppages announced by the Australian Maritime Officers Union. The stoppages were to run for either 48 or 72 hours at Port Botany, Brisbane, and Fremantle.

The industrial action was expected to have significant impact on shipping operations at the affected ports.
