Stevedoring firm Patrick will ask the Fair Work Commission to block Maritime Union of Australia members from taking unlawful industrial action at its Port Botany facility in Sydney. The MUA proposes a seven-day strike over negotiations for a new enterprise bargaining agreement with Kalmar, which provides crane maintenance services for Patrick. The union imposed work bans on the weekend of 14-15 April in response to Kalmar’s move to deploy contractors to replace staff who were on sick leave.
