FREO MUA AGAINST NEW PORT AND FREIGHT LINK

Posted in fremantle, fremantle ports, perth freight link, western australia by freoview on September 22, 2016

Christy Cain, the secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia-MUA- has declared the union is against the building of a new port at Kwinana, against the privatisation of Fremantle Port and against the Perth Freight Link.

Can told the media that a new port would be fully automated and no wharfies needed and that would mean a loss of jobs.

He said Fremantle Port has plenty of room still to expand and that the PFL would not be needed if truck operators worked 24 hours a day as wharfies do, so more freight could be trucked to and from the port at night.
