Tidewater strike averted for now
Tidewater strike averted for now

The Fair Work Commission has put a temporary stop to a planned strike by Tidewater employees tomorrow.

Commissioner Danny Cloghan ordered a delay until the full matter can be heard when the head of the Maritime Union, Will Tracey, returns from overseas on June 4.

About 100 cooks, stewards and deckhands were set to strike for two days from 4am tomorrow.

The workers are on a range of projects across the country, including Chevron’s Wheatstone LNG project near Onslow.

The dispute relates to rostering.

It is one of three sets of industrial action threatened by the maritime union over new pay deals.
