TUNISIA: STEVEDORE STRIKE PLANNED FOR 16-18 APRIL 2019
April 12, 2019
On 3 April the National Union Chamber of Port Services in Tunisia announced a three-day strike from 16-18 April and called on all their affiliates to observe the work stoppage during this period. The strike has been convened as an expression of professional discontent about the lack of interest from the Department of Transport and the Merchant Marine and Ports Board in resolving outstanding issues and reviewing the port company records. The Expanded Executive Board has met to look at all the issues relating to ships’ mooring men, ships’ watchmen and other services provided by the port authorities. Members are advised to contact local agents and correspondents for more precise information about how this might impact their operations.
