Abstract

For weeks in April and May last year, newspaper headlines screamed 'war on the wharves'. Photographs of security guards with guard dogs were juxtaposed with pickets set up by angry wharfies and their crowd of supporters. No mere industrial dispute, this war had an overt political complexion. The Liberal/National Coalition Federal Government was deeply involved mostly on the side of capital while the Australian Labor Party sided with organised labour.
