Bad News For Anyone Thinking Of Travelling Anywhere Today
Are you leaving on a holiday today?
There’s some bad news, because you may not be going anywhere.
Significant delays are expected at Sydney's international airport as a series of rolling strikes by Border Protection staff begins and their battle over employment conditions with the government continues.
For three years staff have been fighting an attempt to cut pay through removal of conditions for dangerous or specialised work and for the right to have a say if there are moves to change their place or times of work, a Community and Public Sector Union spokesman told AAP.
The strikes will start from 6.30am on Monday and may last several days, with the CPSU saying they are only asking the government to meet and discuss an enterprise agreement.
Good luck everyone!
