Adsteam To Appeal Ruling Regarding Crewing

Wednesday, February 16, 2000
Towage group Adsteam Group Ltd. will appeal a New South Wales ports authority ruling that prevented it from applying planned reductions in tugboat crews in the state. "The waterways group considered the matter yesterday, heard submissions from both sides, and concluded it had insufficient information to accept our proposal," Adsteam CEO Clay Frederick said. The Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) said Adsteam's refusal to accept the findings meant a planned 24-hour strike would now go ahead. MUA deckhands will stop work on Adsteam tugs in all New South Wales ports for 24 hours from midnight Wednesday.
