Bulgaria - Carriers threaten with counter-blockade - January 31, 2017

The threat of a blockade of the border as a consequence of Greek farmers’ protests, has instigated fears among transport workers. The Association of International Carriers reported that they would mount a counter-blockade if the Greek farmers went ahead with shutting down border checkpoints as planned. A similar incident in February 2016 has cost Bulgarian companies some estimated 20 million euro. The trade union of transport workers urged all of the country’s state and government institutions to act to prevent another border blockade.
