Neil Mitchell’s frustrating exchange while trying to seek answers over possible food shortages
Neil Mitchell has had a frustrating exchange with the president of one of Australia’s biggest freight companies over the prospect of food and fuel shortages over the next 24 hours due to strike action.
Around 7,000 truck drivers from Global Express have walked off the job amid a pay dispute between Toll and the Transport Workers Union.
Alan Beachman told Neil Mitchell the industrial was “unconscionable and reckless” during a pandemic.
But he said consumers “shouldn’t be concerned” by the disruption.
“We will put extra shifts on tomorrow, we’ll put extra shifts on over the weekend, we’ll try and ensure we get all of the freight moving and we will seek to clean up, and catch up, over the course of next week,” Mr Beachman said.
But many of his answers left Neil Mitchell frustrated.
