Members of the Transport Workers Union (TWU) are set to protest in five Australian airports on Wednesday, August 21, in demand for better pay and more guaranteed hours. Up to 200 workers are expected to participate at each protest.
A protest is scheduled at Adelaide Airport (ADL) at 11:00 (local time) at the taxi rank.
Protesters at Coolangatta Airport (OOL) will gather at 11:00 outside the main terminal.
Protests at Sydney Airport (SYD) will begin at 12:15 at the international arrivals terminal.
Union members have stated they do not seek to disrupt flights, as the mobilization is not a strike and no staff will walk off the job. Normal fight operations should therefore be expected. Localized transportation disruptions are possible.
Individuals traveling via ADL, OOL, PER, SYD, or MEL are advised to monitor the situation and allow additional travel time to the airport in case of transportation disruptions.
