Aug 07

Following on from Hutchison Ports Australia's unsuccessful bid to position themselves as the third Stevedore at Melbourne Port 100 Sydney workers have been sacked overnight via email sent at midnight last night.

Quoting from the email:
"...your position will not be retained. There are no redeployment opportunities. The intended last day of your employment will be Friday 14 August 2015. I realise that this is a lot of information to take in. Accordingly you are will (sp) not be required to attend work effective immediately. We will of course pay you your normal salary to your last date of employment."

There are guards on the gates and workers not even allowed to clear their lockers.

Currently a picket of more than 100 workers at Gate B150 Sirius Rd, Port Botany (access via Foreshore Rd).

We will keep you informed as events unfold.
