Protected Industrial action at Melbourne Airport

Apr 15, 2016

Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU) members of the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) will be taking part in protected industrial action that will affect Melbourne Airport from midnight Sunday 17 April until midnight Monday 18 April, and then rolling one-hour stops until 6am Tuesday 19 April.

This may affect the speed of passengers’ border processing on arrival back to Australia.

If you are travelling, please clear border formalities as quickly as possible and e-passport holders are encouraged to use the SmartGates.

If you are picking up a passenger, please remember there is FREE parking available for 20 minutes on Mercer Drive at our Ring & Ride Wait Zone.

Melbourne Airport will provide additional volunteers to assist passengers, however as this is a matter for the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, for more information please visit:  http://www.agriculture.gov.au/about/commitment/business-continuity-events.
