Toll spokesman Christopher Whitefield said the company was discussing job losses with employees. Although we wont know definitely until next year, unfortunately up to 150 roles could be made redundant. This includes around 90 people working in Darwin, and around 60 people working in Gove, Groote Eylandt, Cairns and in the Torres Strait, he said. Sea Swift chief executive Fred White, said it was uncertain how many staff would be re-employed by Sea Swift when it took over Tolls operations next year. There is naturally some duplication (between Toll and Sea Swifts services) that will be eliminated, which means more efficiency, but also some job losses, he said. Mr White said Sea Swift had itself made a number of staff redundant across Northern Australia. Obviously well need staff to operate the services were taking over. I anticipate that well be advertising on the open market. Tolls exit from the sea freight business in the NT has caused unease across Arnhem Land and Groote Eylandt, where remote communities rely on freight for almost everything that comes into their towns. Maningrida BAC Supermarket manager Norm Daniels said transporting cargo including food, drinks and fuel by sea, cost the community about $40,000 per month. Mr Daniels said he was concerned a lack of competition could drive prices up. Mr White was quick to allay such concerns, saying the ACCC would likely impose price controls on the route, and continuing competition from charter companies, as well as improvements in efficiency would keep prices in check. By MEGAN PALIN and CRAIG DUNLOP Sian Jolley found a dangerous snake in her bedroom and was lucky not to have been bitten. (Snake pictured is a carpet python, not the intruder) Picture: JUSTIN BRIERTY Sso, iss thiss the sside of the bed I ssleep on? SIAN Jolley of Eastside had the fright of her life when she found a deadly western brown snake in her bedroom on Saturday night. I had a couple of red wines so I had a bit of Dutch courage a few more and I might have picked it up, she said. After quickly shutting the door, Ms Jolley dialled the towns snake phone. Rex Neindorf, from the Alice Springs Reptile Centre, said it was not uncommon to find snakes inside homes. One year we caught more snakes in the house than out side, he said. The reason its gone in is because a skink or a mouse or a gecko would have come in and its followed the scent trail. Brown snakes are on the move, as a call went out from Centralian Middle School on Tuesday after one slithered past a student eating lunch. Anyone encountering a snake should call 0407 983 276.
