Portugal - Two weeks of strike in ports - April 30, 2016

The dockworker trade union, Sindicato dos Estivadores, Trabalhadores do Tráfego e Conferentes Marítimos (SETC), issued notice of planned strike action beginning on 20 April 2016 at the ports of Lisbon, Setúbal, and Figueira da Foz. The Port of Lisbon will see stoppage at all of its terminals involving movement of cargo, while Setúbal and Figueira da Foz will stop work on cargo ships rerouted from Lisbon. The strike action has to influence the settlement of a new collective agreement between port workers and operators.
