Media Statement - Response to Federal Opposition Leaders visit in April 2019

Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) did not suspend a port worker or terminate their contract for talking to Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, as has been suggested by media commentators.

The port worker, a sub-contractor, is still employed by the contractor and carrying out work for their employer.

GPC did not instruct any employees or contractors to attend the visit.

The worker is a sub-contractor, and as such GPC cannot comment on any decisions made by their employers.
