Australia, 3/12/97

It has been alleged that several ex-Australian Armed Forces members have advertised in an Australian Army periodical for people to train overseas as strike-breaking mercenaries.

The training would involve ex-Armed Forces personnel learning how to use port equipment. The Labor Opposition claimed today in Federal Parliament that these mercenaries would be likely to be used as strike-breakers on the Australian waterfront. Liberal Government Minister Peter Reith, who has constantly attacked Australian waterside unions, denied any knowledge of the plan.
