Maritime Union President Alex Rawali

Wharfies stop work over stevedoring deals

Armed with banners of stop work, the workers lead by the Maritime Union President Alex Rawali turned up  at the Port Moresby wharf gate this morning to show their intention.     

Their disagreement is similar to their striking counterparts in Lae, Morobe Province where they want PNG Port and the Government to relook at the tender process of awarding stevedoring businesses in two of the nation’s busiest ports.   

After the ending of the tender process four international companies have been shortlisted for the process.
