The cabotage struggle heats up in Australia

Australian support line, Alexander Spirit,July 2015

For those following the struggle of Australian maritime workers to maintain control of jobs in their own coastal waters, we’re offering a collection of news items to bring you up to date. Supporters continue to stand by workers in the latest flashpoint in the battle —  the removal of Aussie crew from the tanker Alexander Spirit in order to replace them with cheap foreign workers. Seafarers who stand to lose their jobs are in a tough spot. Aside from the solidarity we all feel for workers on both sides of this nasty corporate and political manoeuvre, we also have an important stake in this anti-cabotage trend that our own prime minister is bringing to Canadian shores.

For now, catch up on Australia.
