A nation-wide strike has been announced for today in Italian ports following a fatal accident at the Port of San Giorgio di Nogaro.

The strike will last for one hour after the end of each shift across Italian ports, the country’s labor union federation Filt Cgil and Uiltrasporti union said.

The move is being announced after a 62-year-old worker, an employee of a shipping agency, lost his life due to injuries sustained in a forklift accident.

The strike action is being pursued as a means of urging the relevant authorities to upgrade workplace security for maritime labor force and comes in the wake of a string of fatalities.

The unions called for an urgent meeting with the Labour Minister Giuliano Poletti in order to set up a concrete action plan to improve workplace safety.
