This week, many unions in Melbourne, Australia, came out in a show of support (see here and here) for the dockworkers who have walked off their job against the tactics of the global stevedoring giant International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI). The dockworkers who participated from other nearby port operations did so in defiance of Australia’s repressive anti-union laws that forbid secondary actions in support of other workers (see here and here). The dispute is continuing, with pressure building due to goods being held up before the busy Christmas period. To keep up to date with the community picket, click here, but otherwise get down to Webb Dock at 78 Webb Dock Drive, Port Melbourne.
