Massive strike hits Aussie airports as Abbott plans pay cuts for customs and immigration staff

Unrest at the airports points to extreme government attacks on wages and conditions for these workers.
Each day Tony Abbott’s actions seem to move closer to dictatorship and lack of respect and obligation to Australian citizens.
Will the people remember these things come the next election?


‘Passengers at all international airports across Australia are in for major disruptions and delays in the busy Monday morning peak period as customs and immigration staff strike against the Abbott government’s plans to cut A$8,000 from workers’ pay.

Airports have urged travelers heading overseas on Monday to “come in as early as they can.”

The strike will hit international airports in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Cairns, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin. At the Melbourne airport, the strike kicked off at 7 a.m. and will continue until 11 a.m., with further action set to continue from 9 p.m. on Monday until 1 a.m. on Tuesday.’
