Maritime Union reacts to damning Ports of Auckland report

From Checkpoint, 5:26 pm on 21 September 2022

A damning report into the Ports of Auckland's automation programme has found multiple failings, leading to inadequate management and governance.

The report found the project suffered from poor risk assessments and a failure to consult experts within the Port itself.

The automation program was dumped this year, after costing ratepayers more than $65 million.

It also found the business case was unsatisfactory, and that the project was blighted by personality clashes and cultural differences.

Craig Harrison is the Maritime Union National Secretary and joins Nick Truebridge.
