Stevedores postpone Spanish strike action again

Local P&I correspondents have informed North P&I that the strike action scheduled by Spanish dockworkers for 10th, 13th and 15th March have been cancelled following negotiations between employers and trade unions. The unions had called for a series of port strikes, starting from March 6th and carried out over nine alternate days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, for three consecutive weeks. The strikes are reportedly on a one hour on, one hour off basis, although full stoppages and disruption may be expected in many of the country’s main ports. Hispania P&I Correspondents have issued a circular that explains in detail the background of this latest industrial action.
