National protected industrial action by Immigration and Border Protection staff
30-07-2015 -
Employees of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP), including the Australian Border Force, who are members of the Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU) will undertake protected industrial action (PIA) on Monday 3 August 2015 across Australia.

Passengers travelling internationally on Monday morning may experience delays at airports, while visa and citizenship services may also be affected.

Acting Deputy Commissioner Operations, Steve Lancaster, said travellers and DIBP clients should not be alarmed by this action, but allow extra time for processing.

“The CPSU has agreed that a range of functions that maintain safety of life at sea and national security safeguards will be excluded from any PIA,” Mr Lancaster said.

“The health, safety and security of the public and our staff continue to be our priority”.

“We are working closely with our partner agencies to minimise impacts on operations”.

“We recommend that passengers booked on international flights departing on Monday morning to arrive early in accordance with your airline’s guidelines and after check-in, promptly proceed straight to immigration and customs clearance.”

Further information will be published on the Department’s website (Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection ) and official Facebook page.

The proposed enterprise agreement has been circulated to employees, and will be put to a vote as soon as possible.

Transitional arrangements that maintain a range of conditions for former Australian Customs and Border Protection Service employees have been put in place from 1 July through determinations made under the Public Service Act 1999.

Not necessarily. My experience is that not everyone participates in industrial action
