Portuguese Dockworkers Serve New Strike Notice

Operations at the Portuguese port of Lisbon could be hit by another industrial action as the Portuguese Dockers Union (SETC) served its latest strike notice.

Under the notice, the union said it plans to continue the work stoppage at the port, starting from 8 pm on May 27 until June 16, which would be related to all types of work involving movement of cargo at all terminals.

SETC further said that the strike could affect the operations at the country’s ports of Setúbal and Figueira Da Foz as well.

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

Launched after a three-year dispute period over a new collective bargaining agreement between the port workers and the operators of the port of Lisbon, the latest strike follows a work stoppage in the port which started on May 12, and could last until May 27.

Due to the inability of the two sides to find a middle-ground on the new contracts, SETC has been serving strike notices since November 2015.
