Maritime Union on notice: Attorney-General says ‘enough is enough’
The federal government is threatening to intervene amid ongoing industrial action at Port Botany.
The union is seeking to replicate a deal struck with Hutchison Ports where up to 70 per cent of new hires will be sourced from employees’ families and friends.

“We’ve put the MUA on notice.”
