Portugal -Grievances of dockers -January 07, 2014

According to the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) and the International Dockworkers’ Council (IDC), all negotiations between workers and employers have ceased, with attempts being made to establish a new labour pool of non-union workers to replace existing professionals. The trade unions have stated in advance of a Europe-wide strike that working conditions in the ports have deteriorated since the adoption of a new Port Law on 1 February 2013, with dockers allegedly having come under sustained attack from both the Portuguese government and their employers.
