Striking dockers paralyse Spanish ports


A TWO day strike involving dock workers at major Spanish ports, including Alicante and Cartagena and others throughout the country is having a crippling effect.

The second day of the 48-hour uninterrupted strike called by the union of dockers has again paralysed Spanish ports, as although minimum services are met, monitoring is almost non existant, according to union sources.

The Minister of Public Works, Inigo de la Serna, stressed today from Leon that the strike involves losses of 12 million euros per day and is causing the permanent diversion of goods to other ports outside Spain.

Unless the unions and employers Anesco reach an agreement earlier, next week intermittent stops are scheduled for Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Anesco will hold an extraordinary assembly tomorrow to analyze the latest proposal of the unions.
