New Strike Wave to Further Cripple Spanish Ports

Spanish ports are facing another round of strikes as stevedores announced plans to strike next week, as well.

Namely, the strikes are to be held from June 14th, 0800 hrs till June 16th 0800 hrs. In addition, dockworkers said that they would stop work at odd hours on June 19th, 21st, 23rd, resulting in only 50% of workable time.

Spanish dockworker unions launched a nation-wide strike on Monday impacting operations across the country’s 39 cargo ports. According to representatives of the Spanish dockworkers union, almost 100 percent of workers supported the strike.
