UPDATE Tug Master Strike Notice

Posted on 06/06/2018


Port Nelson Ltd (PNL) advises that strike notices issued by the Merchant Service Guild (MSG) on behalf of Tug Masters and Tug Engineers for the coming weekend have been withdrawn.

Both parties met in mediation today in Nelson and as a result of that meeting it was agreed that further discussions would take place early next week.

Strike notices issued by the MSG for the weekend commencing 1800 Hrs Friday 15th June through to 0600 Hrs Monday 18th June remain in place at this time.

It is hoped that further progress can be made between the two parties in the coming week.

We will continue to keep you advised as matters progress.
