Employees and Australian Workers Union (AWU) members at CSR’s Yarraville sugar refinery are in dispute with management over a log of claims for their enterprise bargaining agreement.
On April 9, some 700 workers employed at the Port Melbourne-based Boeing subsidiary Hawker de Havilland went on strike. They were protesting against the company’s April 7 sacking of an Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU) member without going through the agreed dispute-settlement procedure. The HDH plant makes parts for Boeing’s new 787 airliner.
