Port Waratah Coal Services Ltd. Key Developments

Port Waratah Coal Services Ltd. Workers Strike at Newcastle Port

Workers at a Newcastle port will strike over the next four days after a breakdown in negotiations between unions and management over work conditions. A group of unions representing about half of the 450 workers at Port Waratah Coal Services Ltd. received a unanimous vote for industrial action on July 10, 2013. The strikes began on July 11, 2013 morning with work stopping between 1am (AEST) and 5am. They will continue over the next four nights as work ceases around 8pm before resuming at 4am. Non-unionised staff will continue while the stoppages are held. Discussions have been described by both sides as co-operative, mature and consultative. And while the groups have reached an accord on about 50 alterations to the enterprise agreement, unions say action is being taken to protest against a 'watered-down dispute clause'.

Newcastle Port Workers to Strike Again June 14 to 16

Port Waratah Coal Services Ltd., (PWCS) and the unions have not yet reached an agreement over key issues related to dispute-settling procedures. PWCS has been served with notices of the strikes.
