    Australia: Airport delays expected during strike

    International travellers could face major delays when Australian Border Force staff strike for 24 hours nationwide next month in an ongoing dispute over pay and conditions.

    Frontline workers at eight Australian international airports will take the full-day action on Monday, November 9.

    The stoppage by union members at the Immigration Department — which includes the Border Force — could see passport and arrival card checks slowed at air and sea ports and delayed baggage and cargo.

    The affected airports are Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Darwin, Cairns and Gold Coast.
