    Default Stevedoring???

    According to the dictionary "stevedoring" is the nautical version of "loading".

    Default Australian word usage

    In Australia, stevedores / dockers were historically referred to as wharf labourers and were colloquially called wharfies. The Maritime Union of Australia has coverage of these workers, and fought a substantial industrial battle in the 1998 Australian waterfront dispute to prevent the contracting out of work to non-union contractors.

    You search it, I will find it!
