The Australian Maritime Safety Authority, has been called on to investigate claims, the crew of the Hong Kong flagged bulk carrier...docked at Port Kembla to carry steel from Bluescope..have not been paid in more than two months. The vessel's sister ship has been detained in the Port of Brisbane, following almost-identical allegations of unpaid wages.
