Strikes set to cause delays at GC Airport

International travellers are being warned of long delays today with major strikes taking places across Australia.

Department of Immigration and Border Protection employees are planning 10 days of disruptions to protest pay and working conditions.

The Community and Public Sector Union says border staff are furious over a pay proposal that effectively cuts current wages and leaves some workers $8000 a year worse off.

The strikes started at 4am in Cairns and are scheduled for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and the Gold Coast.

ABF Acting Deputy Commissioner Operations, Stephen Allen, said travellers should not be alarmed by this action, but allow extra time for processing.

 “We are continuing to work closely with our partner agencies to minimise impacts on operations”.

“The health, safety and security of the public and our staff continue to be our priority”.
