Svitzer Australia update
Fair Work Commission Decision
Suspension for 6 Months
Dear Customers and Stakeholders
A full bench of the Fair Work Commission has advised of its decision this morning with respect to the protected industrial action.
Importantly, the FWC has ordered a suspension of all industrial action for a period of six (6) months.
We welcome the certainty this brings to our customers and stakeholders. Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding at this time.
In the interim – all shipping and port operations continue. There may be some minor disruptions around ports today as maritime unions participate in demonstrations at multiple locations around Australia today (Friday 18 November).
