Australia: strike by Border Force staff this week

Strike action by Australian Border Force staff at international airports across the country is expected to affect international flights later this week.


Workers will take part in mass strikes at the country’s seven international airports from midnight on Friday, August 12, in a renewed bid to break the deadlocked battle over their pay and conditions.


The Department of Immigration and Border Protection on Tuesday said it could also impact flights late on Thursday night and early on Saturday.
