Dockworkers defend fellow workers against victimisation

dockworkers defend fellow workers against victimisationA casual worker in Melbourne, Australia, employed by the global stevedoring giant International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI), was dismissed recently. He is a staunch unionist and had been complaining about bullying and harassment by the company. A community protest has been established outside the workplace to support this worker. The Maritime Union of Australia has been trying to establish minimum standards for wages and conditions, but ICTSI has refused to negotiate with the union. ICTSI is notorious globally for its unions busting (see here and here) with their Chief Executive being on the record as saying that ‘…countries with the best infrastructure in the world are dictatorships’.
