The Maritime Union of Australia says rolling strikes throughout October won’t ruin Christmas. 

Wharfies are expected to walk off the job for 12 hours every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

“That Christmas shelves won’t be stocked in time, that’s a complete fabrication,” MUA Assistant National Secretary Jamie Newlyn told Neil Breen.

“There’s plenty of capacity on the Australian waterfront with other container terminal operators to make sure that our stores will be full of stock and the kids will get their Christmas presents.

“We’re trying to limit impact on the public by just quarantining the action to Patrick, where the dispute lies.”
