Portugal -Dockers organise 10-day strike -November 07, 2015

Dockworkers in Lisbon, Setubal and Figueira da Foz have called a 10-day strike protesting against the sale of the ports to a Turkish company, Yildirim. The sale implies the end of the current collective agreement and dockets fear they will be worse off under the new owner. The strikes are accompanied by an indefinite towage strike in the port of Barcelona, Spain. The strikes are not expected to hit the two biggest ports, Sines and Leixoes.
