Union Jobs in Just Transition

Wednesday, 2 August 2023 - 8:30am to 9:00am

We are going down outside the Convention Centre, Melbourne to a rally of Unions called by the MUA, the Maritime Union of Australia, who were targeting Orsted, the Danish company, the world’s biggest offshore wind power developer, whose CEO Mads Nipper was due to speak at Australia Wind Energy 2023 inside. Orsted has a record of trashing union jobs in America where they reneged on a deal with the ILA, the International Longshoremen's Association, in New Hampshire. As we hear from the speakers at the rally it was the ILA members who supported Australian wharfies in such major disputes as the Patricks 1987 dispute and more recently the protracted dispute with QUBE in Freemantle. Now it is Australia’s turn to stand up for their American comrades and secure local jobs.
