Australian media reports that the crew has filed an application for a hearing in Fair Work Australia. The 36 seafarers, who had delivered fuel from Caltex, understood that they would be taken over by an international crew.
The crew is demanding answers from Teekay.
“We will stay put till we get answers. We were contracted ’til 2019 and found out our fate while docked in Hobart.” says Andy Poynter, a crew member.
Today some 200 protesters marched through the streets of Devonport to show support for the protesting crew.
