Ports Update

via the tipline

The Employment Court in Wellington has granted an injunction to CentrePort against against MUNZ & RMTU in Wellington. The ship they are currently blacklisting will now be worked.

As more details come to hand I will post them.

Once again the Maritime Union and the RMTU have been shown to be ignorant of NZ Labour laws. Once again Garry Parlsoe’s empty threats that ships won;t be worked has proven false.

UPDATE: From NewstalkZB

Staff at Wellington’s CentrePort have been ordered to unload a ship they had blacklisted after it was loaded by non-union workers in Auckland.

The Employment Court has granted an injunction against the Maritime Union and the Rail and Maritime Transport Union.

That means both unions are prevented from stopping their members working on the Maersk Aberdeen.
