Subject: MUA Resolution Condemns Howard on Greater Sunrise

The MUA Quadrennial Conference took place this week in Sydney, gathering maritime workers from across the country and international guests from across the globe. The unjustified attempt by the Howard Government to ram the passage of the Greater Sunrise Unitisation Agreement Amendment Bill through the Senate - which has the apparent support of the Opposition - was widely condemned.

The following resolution was passed:

' The MUA Quadrennial Conference condemns the Federal Government's move to rush through the "Great Sunrise Unitisation Amendments" bill which could put East Timorese maritime workers and their union at an even greater disadvantage for their employment, development and training opportunities.'
