Ports of Auckland has announced:
Ports of Auckland will shortly start work to partially automate its container terminal. It will be the first New Zealand port and only the third straddle carrier terminal in the world to automate. …
As a result of automation, around 50 stevedoring roles could go. As the project will take about three years to implement, we will endeavour to manage the reduction in roles through a combination of staff turnover, retirement and retraining.
Well that should mean fewer strikes!
