Swedish Dockers Strike in Port of Gothenburg

Dock workers at the largest port in Scandinavia,the Port of Gothenburg, Sweden,  went on strike on November 15, 2016 according to The Local SE.

The dock workers’ union announced on its Facebook page that no agreement had been reached with management and added that the strike began at 2pm on Tuesday.

Sveriges Hamnar, or Ports of Sweden – an industry and employers’ organization comprising 60 port companies and over 4,000 employees, heavily criticized the action, which will mean only one-third of the ports usual container traffic will be able to be handled. This is a large amount considering that half of all container traffic for Sweden passes through Gothenburg.
