Dockers in Mosjøen are in dispute over claims that their employer, Mosjøen Industri Terminal (MIT), a subcontractor at Alcoa's facility, has failed to pay money owed to them for their work and that they have been illegally locked out since early May 2014. Another ongoing dispute in the port of Risavika is showing no sign of resolution. Workers there have been on strike for nine months over alleged attempts by employers to override International Labour Organisation regulations that protect the status of dockers and subsequently restrict who can unload and load cargo.
