Fair Work Commission Update  – 17 Nov

Dear Customers and Stakeholders

Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

The Fair Work Commission hearing has concluded for today, but in its statement before adjourning it advised the lockout will not proceed.

The hearing remains underway and the FWC is giving some further considerations overnight as to whether to suspend or terminate the protected industrial action – but they have made it clear they will issue an order before midday (AEDT) Friday 18 November. 

On this basis, the lockout will not proceed and customers can return to planned shipping movements and recommence port operations.
