ferry workers

Two companies have used the COVID-19 pandemic to justify mass sackings of ferry workers, report Jim McIlroy and Rachel Evans.

Workers on the Sydney Harbour ferries that have been privatised went on strike for two hours on March 6. The strike involved workers on the NRMA-owned My Fast Ferry and Fantasea Cruising.  

While the company brought in non-union skippers, all Fast Ferry services between Manly and Circular Quay were stopped by the strike and picket.
