DP World: Ongoing Protected Industrial Action - Update

December 11, 2023

The CFMMEU-MUA (Maritime Union of Australia) division and DP World have been actively engaged in negotiations facilitated by the Fair Work Commission. These discussions aim to reach a mutual understanding; however, significant differences persist despite some progress.

Since October 6, rolling stop-work bans have affected DP World’s operations, consequently impacting the broader Australian supply chain. The CFMMEU-MUA division has announced a series of work bans and stoppages scheduled to take place from Monday, December 11, to Saturday, December 23, with potential withdrawals on specific dates during local-level discussions.

At Seabridge, we want to assure you that the integrity of your supply chain remains our top priority. We are acutely aware of the challenges posed by these industrial actions and are actively monitoring the situation. Our dedicated team is working diligently to minimize potential disruptions and to find effective solutions to ensure your shipments continue to move smoothly.
