AMOU meet with Shadow Immigration Minister

AMOU Vice President Kerry Bullock and Industrial Officer Jarrod Moran yesterday (9 August) briefed Shayne Neumann Shadow Minister for Immigration and Border Protection on the BP Exploratory Drilling issue.  Your AMOU representatives also took the opportunity to update Shayne on the Unions campaign to remove deck officer positions from the Governments 457 visa lists.

Shayne was shocked to hear that 457 visas continue to be granted to foreign Masters and Deck Officers while many Australian seafarers are unemployed.

The AMOU has sought meetings with the Minister for Immigration Peter Dutton and the Assistant Minister Alex Hawke but to date we have not had any responses to our requests.
