Ports of Auckland loses Fonterra

The Maritime Union has announced another strike for January 9 and The Ports of Auckland has lost Fonterra as a customer:

Ports of Auckland has lost its contract with the country’s largest exporter, Fonterra.

The move will see weekly trade worth around $27 million re-routed through the ports of Tauranga and Napier.

Ports of Auckland Chief Executive Tony Gibson says the threat of ongoing industrial action means it’s inevitable customers will look for alternatives and contingencies.

Tony Gibson says he’s today advised the union that the port’s latest – and ninth – offer is its best and final one.

The next strike action is planned for a 48 hour period from Monday morning.

The union is destroying the Port, it must be taken on and busted. They are no longer protecting jobs they are now actively destroying jobs.
