Title:Wharfside elves deliver Christmas to Wellington
Article Abstract:BIOGRAPHY FILE: TOBIN, David
Looks at the work of stevedores unloading cargo at the Port of Wellington, through the experiences and changes seen by two workers, one of whom has been there for 34 years and the other for over 13. Compares the era before containerisation when the port needed 1,800 waterside workers to move cargo manually, with the present day, when 70, with the help of machinery, handle up to 600 containers each day.
