Marine Towage Award 2010 Varied

Vice President Watson has accepted the maritime unions joint application to vary the Marine towage Award 2012. We submitted that the Marine Towage Award 2010 be varied to change all references from "tonnage" to the pre-modern award terminology "tonnage/power units" (previously used in the industry in the Tugboat Industry Award 1999) as the tonnage had cause some confusion.

He also agreed to clause 13.1 of the award to aid in the calculation of the daily rate of pay, and gave parties 14 days to object to his decision.
