Strike forces cancellation of Sydney's fast ferry services

Sydney commuters face further disruptions to fast ferry services after workers have called a day-long strike tomorrow over a new pay deal, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

The strike by about 80 staff employed by the NRMA-owned Manly Fast Ferries will force the cancellation of all fast ferry services on the Manly-Circular Quay route, as well as tourist charters and regular services on five other routes on Sydney Harbour.

The other routes affected by the latest strike will be Manly-Darling Harbour, Manly-North Sydney, Manly-Pyrmont, Manly-Taronga Zoo and Circular Quay-Taronga Zoo. Tourist services, including whale watching charters, will also not run.

The government-owned fleet of ferries operated on Sydney Harbour and Parramatta River by Transdev will not be affected by the strike.
