The Fight for Australian Seafarers: Part 2

View descriptionShare

MUA seafarers have been getting systematically sacked around the Australian coast due to the actions of successive conservative national governments.

A series of government decisions has created the possibility for shipping lines to fire their MUA workforce, and employ en masse non-union workers to run ships up the Australian coast.

This isn’t unique to Australia.  Across the rich, developed world, governments have been collaborating with shipping industry bosses to smash seafarers unions.

The MUA is fighting tooth and nail to roll back these attacks, and we’re not alone.  Seafarers unions across the world have been fighting this too.

With us in Part 2 of our series to give us a rundown on what’s happening is legendary Canadian seafarer Jim Given.  Jim is the President of the Seafarers International Union of Canada and the  Chair, ITF Cabotage Taskforce

Also with on this show is wharfie and working class warrior Warren Smith, Assistant National Secretary of the mighty MUA.
