Audience at Port of Timaru meeting, 17 September 2009

Over 100 local people attended a Timaru public meeting on the future of the port of Timaru on Thursday 17 September.

The meeting was called by the Maritime Union of New Zealand following a decision last month by Fonterra to stop exports from the port of Timaru, which has resulted in a massive loss of work for the port.

Maritime Union General Secretary Trevor Hanson says the meeting was a success.
