Richmond leading dockers to seek more certainty over next seven years

Richmond leading dockers to seek more certainty over next seven years

Updated

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is 우리카지노looking into whether some of the dockyard workers affected by a massive blaze at Port Botany, on the Gold Coast, over the weekend are eligible for severance payments.

The dock workers, including five Australians, were working on the wooden dock in the late hours of Saturday (local time). They were forced to put out the fire with minimal safety equipment when a fuel tank filled with flames shot out from the ship’s cargo compartment in the second quar바카라ter of 2015.

The flames forced the ship’s bow forward, leaving a gash on her stern and leaving dozens of damaged lives on the water.

The firefighters were the only members of the crew that had a firefighting training course and were working on a dry container, according to an AMSA spokesman.

The fire has forced the closure of all cargo areas on board the ship which was heading for Sydney, the Port of Melbourne and Melbourne Airport.

The company has paid a total of around AU$11 million for the compensation. It is believed $4.6 million has been paid out더킹카지노 over the past three years, the most recent being in November 2014, with about AU$1.4 million earmarked to the last three months.

The company has said it expects to pay out around AU$1 million in compensation through an incentive plan it will announce later this year.

The port’s director of finance said while some of the dockers were entitled to compensation, he believed most deserved less, due to previous misadventure.

“The fact that we’ve been dealing with this for so long doesn’t reflect well on us,” he said.

“When I was in the Docklands some years back the shipyards and our shipyards were all in such a good state that I think we’re all really quite happy.

“We’re not so happy now. It’s sad to me that we should be, because we’ve got some really good jobs here.

“I have no idea how many of the people who’ve been injured were working on this for several years and haven’t been paid.”
