With Border Protection staff set to strike at eight of Australia’s international airports today, those flying overseas can expect MAJOR delays.
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection employees are planning to take 10 days strike action in protest of pay and working conditions.
This comes after proposed pay cuts of up to $8000.
Staff processing departing and arriving travellers on international flights will not be working for two hours during the morning and night (peak times).
Affected airports include Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Gold Coast and Cairns.
