Protected Industrial Action by MUA at Patrick Terminals


On Friday 21st May 2021, Patrick Terminals advised that there may be a possible impact at each of their terminal operations as a result of the planned industrial action. This was furthered by a "Protected Industrial Action (PTA)" notification served by the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) to Patrick Terminals.


While the team at Patrick Terminals will continue to endeavour to minimise the operational impact of this action by the MUA, it is inevitable that there may still be an impact on customers.
