Eastern Australia’s Port Kembla Coal Terminal has received union notification of a seven-day strike starting 1 February after negotiations failed to resolve a labour dispute.

Operations at the terminal will be disrupted and ship waiting times increased as the company continues to seek talks with the Construction, Forestry, Mining, and Energy Union to resolve the matter, said Peter Green, the general manager of the terminal.

Port Kembla is a key coal exporting facility about 72 km south of Sydney and serves two of the country’s richest coal reserves, the Southern and Western coalfields of New South Wales state.

It is operated by six partners including BHP Billiton, Peabody Energy and Xstrata who lease the terminal from the government of New South Wales.
