Oz strike to cause delays

19 September 2016

Travellers to Australia may experience delays at the country’s international airports and cruise ship terminals due to a planned strike by Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) staff from September 26.

DIBP staff, who are members of the Community & Public Sector Union, are expected to participate in a week-long strike that will end on October 2.

Travel agents should advise their clients to arrive at the airport earlier during the week of the strike.
