Illawarra Mercury reported that Port Kembla Coal Terminal workers will remain on the picket line after deciding to strike until Monday. They were due to return to work on Thursday morning after PKCT locked them out for a week - the third such lockout in four weeks. Combined with an earlier week-long strike it means the workers have not set foot inside the coal terminal since January 19. That's a total of 30 days without a pay cheque.

Mr Bob Timbs, CFMEU's district vice president, said the decision to strike for four days was made on Wednesday night. Mr "We're just resolved to the fact that we’re going to have to finish this, that we need to maintain our current job security clause. If it takes further industrial action then unfortunately we’re going to have to do it, but we're prepared to stick it out for the long haul."
