Australia – Strike

09 September, 2016

The designated operator of Australia, Australia Post, asks us to inform the designated operators of other Union member countries that the staff union in the Australian public service, which includes the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and the Department of Agriculture, responsible for overseeing customs clearance at all inbound offices of exchange in Australia, announced that it would ask its members to go on strike on Friday, 9 September 2016.

The strike action will lead to delays on all inbound mail on 9 September and in the days following, owing to the backlogs resulting from the delays on the day of the strike.

Australia Post thanks all member countries for their understanding.
