Greece - Dock workers against privatisation - December 31, 2015

Dock workers started a 24-hour strike in protest against the privatisation of two of the country‘s key ports. The trade union of dockworkers stated that they will not allow the ports to be sold off, in response to the plans to privatize sites in the harbour cities of Piraeus and Thessaloniki. Merchant shipping is most affected by the industrial action, with cargo vessels and tankers in both of the major ports left without workers to load and unload the ships.
