A three-day strike started at Australian Port Kembla Coal Terminal (PKCT) on April 11 over a dispute regarding Employee Enterprise Agreement negotiations, GAC informs.

“The dispute is affecting the shipping program with one vessel presently alongside waiting to complete cargo loading, four at anchorage and another four vessels due off port by April 14,” GAC said.

As a result of the industrial action, coal will not be loaded or received from 00:00 to 07:00 local time on April 12.

What is more, cargo will not be received from 07:01 on April 12 until 07:00 on April 13, according to GAC.

There will be a partial ban on operational activities, with vessel loading and receiving partially impacted from 07:00 to 15:00 on April 13.

Located 72 kilometers south of Sydney, PKCT services two of the nation’s richest coal reserves, the Southern and Western coalfields of New South Wales.
