Strikes will not stop weather reports
ROLLING stoppages by Bureau of Meteorology staff are not expected to affect weather forecasts and warnings.
The Community and Public Sector Union said its members would be legally protected to strike at any time between 4.30am and 7.30pm from today until next Tuesday, with further action possible.
Rolling strikes mean CPSU members would be able to walk off the job at times they judge will cause the maximum disruption to management, the union’s deputy secretary Beth Vincent-Pietsch said.
A BoM spokesman said the Australian community would continue to receive timely forecasts and warnings during the period of protected industrial action.
The long-running dispute centres on enterprise bargaining negotiations.
