Airport Strikes: Stop-work Action Resumes

Posted:

Travellers are being told to expect delays as Border Protection staff go on strike at Australia’s international airports from today.

Immigration, Border Protection and Department of Agriculture staff will walk off the job tomroorw at Sydney, Cairns and Townsville international airports.

From Thursday, that strike action will start affecting Brisbane and Gold Coast airports.

The Community and Public Sector Union is warning passengers “may experience some delays” when arriving into or leaving Australia on international flights.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has said the strikes are not expected to affect security because Australian Federal Police “has that in hand”.

Workers from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection plus those from Agriculture were slated to begin their strike action last week.

That action was postponed following a plea by Mr Turnbull in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks that killed dozens at the Brussels airport in Belgium.

The staff are demanding changes to the government’s workplace bargaining policy.

The industrial action will run from now until at least April 7 although a CPSU spokesman said the strikes are expected to occur after that date.
