Guest posted a topic in Shipping and RemovalsINTERNATIONAL airline passengers entering Australia tomorrow face delays and disruption due to quarantine employees voting to strike for four hours over a pay claim. The union representing Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries employees said inbound international travellers should be prepared for delays and urged those collecting passengers to take account of this, The Australian reported. The Community and Public Sector Union said the industrial action would also affect cargo inspections, the release of imported goods and X-ray screening of international mail. In a letter to the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, a Sydney Airport senior manager, Jeff Stirk, warned the action would have a "very significant impact'' on operations. Increased congestion in the Customs hall and baggage reclaims areas would heighten security risks, and there could be problems with baggage handling, including on transfer flights. Strike scheduled for 19th August 2011
Our eldest daughter will be 14 in August and should start her GCSE courses here in September. What year would that put her in the aussie education system and how could i best try to manage the change for her so as not to set her back? She already has very defenite ideas about what she wants to study in higher ed. .Our other daughters are younger and so less of a worry. Any advice would be great.:spinny:
