Wharfies accuse DP World of dirty tactics as dock strike hits deep water

More than 200 employees at DP World’s Fremantle terminal have stopped work this morning as a dispute over an enterprise bargaining agreement heats up.

The port operator is calling on the Federal Government to intervene in its battle with the Maritime Union across the country, which is set to cost an estimated 265-million-dollars.

But Maritime Union of Australia WA Branch Secretary Will Tracey told Sean Cowan on 6PR Mornings the point of the strike action is to get DP World back to the negotiation table without government intervention.

“What they say is occurring is not occurring; they have lied about perishable goods being destroyed at the Port of Fremantle,” Mr Tracey said.
