Spain - Dockers strike against new regulations - February 28, 2017

Dock workers have called nine days of strikes to protest government plans to allow ports to hire non-unionised labour, threatening to disrupt trade for up to three weeks from 6 March 2017. Dockers called off a planned three-day strike after the government said it would put its reforms on hold and open talks, but the decision to push ahead with a bigger strike came after the government signalled it would not change parts of the planned legislation on liberalisation of the sector. The legislation would allow companies operating in ports to hire staff that do not belong to unions, a move unpopular with union members but which would bring Spain in line with European Union regulations.
