  • Reith outlines seven benchmark objectives
    IN THE wake of Patrick's decision to sack its entire workforce, the federal government yesterday announced "seven benchmark objectives" for waterfront reform.
    Minister for Workplace Relations Peter Reith said that as part of the reform package the government had established a framework to ensure that any workers made redundant through restructuring of the waterfront received the full value of their benefits.
  • Lines coy about Patrick plans
    PATRICK clients were yesterday keeping their counsel over whether or not they would use the new P&CS-manned Patrick operation, although the company's biggest client, Mediterranean Shipping Company, was stating a clear position.
    With five ships currently on the coast and 464 Australian port calls per annum, MSC spokesman Alan Brown told DCN the company had long-term contracts with Patrick and expected them to honour those contracts.
  • Confident MUA looks for public support
    THE Maritime Union of Australia is confident it can overcome the federal government's latest attempt at waterfront reform, the national secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia, John Coombs, predicted yesterday.
    Mr Coombs told DCN he did not believe there was a great deal of support in the community for the method in which the government has promoted that change.
    He said the outcome of the union's action in the Federal Court, which was aimed at preventing Patrick's move could have a significant effect on the row, particularly in the Court ruled in the union's favour.
  • Service providers fear losses
    THE phrase 'no gain without pain' has been used repeatedly on the waterfront and the 'pain' element looks set to become a truism for many service providers not directly involved in the dispute, with many already saying they will lose business if the situation escalates or drags on.
    Port Phillip Sea Pilots president Charles Griffithss said: "We're losing some of our business of course, although at the moment it's only Patrick that's affected. But if it spreads we estimate what we will lose will be about 15 per cent of our business… probably not more than that because it's just not cost effective to ship cargo to Adelaide and move it back by train."
  • Hein not surprised but still cautious
    THE chairman of P&O Australia, Richard Hein, said yesterday that he was not surprised by the mass dismissal of waterfront workers by Patrick.
    Mr Hein said he was surprised that it took so long for the dispute to come to a head.
    Although he confirmed that P&O supported Workplace Relations Minister Peter Reith's benchmark objectives for the Australian waterfront, Mr Hein was cautious when asked when the company would also be taking advantage of the redundancy provisions being advanced by the government.
    He said P&O Ports and the Maritime Union of Australia were continuing to consult on further waterfront reform.
