Update: Strike at Damen’s Galati Shipyard Over

The workers’ strike at Damen’s Galati shipyard in Romania has ended, it has been confirmed to World Maritime News by a Damen spokesperson.

The strike was staged on August 29, when a number of workers held a spontaneous demonstration in front of the company’s headquarters. The workers were dissatisfied with their wages and were reportedly asking for a pay increase.

The protest resulted in a work stoppage at the yard for almost three days.

The strike was ended on Thursday, August 31, and work operations are said to have been resumed.

Local media informed that the strike was concluded as the company’s management agreed to the proposed wage increase terms.

Talks between the company and the union are set to continue until September 15 when a final deal is expected.
