Finland -Dock workers strike ended -June 12, 2014

Dock workers at the HaminaKotka harbour and everywhere else in Finland have returned to their jobs after a day-long strike brought the sea ports to a standstill.

Dock workers at the HaminaKotka harbour and everywhere else in Finland have returned to their jobs after a day-long strike brought the sea ports to a standstill. The Seamen’s Union claimed that the North-Western Shipping Company was slashing its workers’ pay and possibly even freight agreement prices. A written threat to a shop steward by a representative of a shipping company in response to the refusal of stevedores to unload a Russian vessel has been cited as the reason for the strike.
