Portugal’s Port of Lisbon Grinds to a Two-Day Halt

All operations at Portugal’s port of Lisbon have been completely frozen since Wednesday as the port’s dockworkers launched a strike which could last until May 5, according to the Portuguese Dockers Union (SETC).

The strike is affecting cargo operations at all terminals in the port, SETC said.

All port workers, including the ones who have a contractual relationship with the port providing either stevedoring or other services, are involved in the industrial action.

SETC further informed that the strike could have an affect on operations in the ports of Setúbal and Figueira da Foz.

The industrial action follows a three-year dispute period over a new collective bargaining agreement between the port workers and the operators of the port of Lisbon.

The union earlier said that the inability to reach an agreement resulted in a number of strike notices being delivered to port operators since November 2015.
