100 workers were sacked by Hutchison Ports Australia at Port Botany and Brisbane terminals via email sent at midnight last night.

Quoting from the email:

“…your position will not be retained. There are no redeployment opportunities. The intended last day of your employment will be Friday 14 August 2015. I realise that this is a lot of information to take in. Accordingly you are will (sp) not be required to attend work effective immediately. We will of course pay you your normal salary to your last date of employment."

There are guards on the gates and workers are not even allowed to clear their lockers.

There is a continuous Community Picket at Gate B150 Sirius Rd, Port Botany (access via Foreshore Rd).

Unions NSW encourages all members of the community and affiliates to attend and support the continuous Community Picket.
