Europe   The strike called by CC OO will affect the entire Spanish state-owned port

Spanish trade union CC OO union has called a strike of 21 hours of port workers on April 17.


The reason is the standstill of the collective labour agreement talks, which still does not have the approval of the Ministry of Finance although the Ministry of Public Works has approved it.

The strike called by CC OO will affect the entire Spanish state-owned port system, composed of 28 port authorities.

About 5,000 workers have seen their severance rights and compensation affected, while the productivity bonuses have been frozen since 2010. All of the above has meant a wage cut close to 30%, CCOO said.
