The Spanish stevedoring unions have decided to shelve their strike plans for the rest of this month as a sign of good will.
The move was prompted by a letter from the Association of Port Stevedoring Companies of Barcelona, which asked for the suspension of strikes after major port companies left the employers’ association Anesco.
Previously, the unions said that a number of major companies did not support Anesco’s approach to resolving the conflict, and that many vowed to guarantee all jobs to keep the social peace, and remain open for negotiations.
In light of the latest developments, the unions cancelled the strikes planned for June 23, 26 and 27.
The dockworker strikes have had a major impact on the Spanish economy.
