Corsican Port Workers Strike Blocks Bastia Harbour On June 23

Bastia, Corsica, France (PortSEurope) June 24, 2019 – A strike of Corsican port workers paralysed the port of Bastia for the whole day on June 23.

The protest prevented the Moby Zazà ferry from leaving the island. The ship was due to arrive in the port of Genoa at 1830 local time. For Stazioni Marittime, the company that manages the traffic in Genoa, the arrival and the consequent departure of the vessel on the same route were for 2100 local time. There would be about 400 people on board.

In the end, everything was solved for the best. The meeting in the port ended positively and the resumption of the service for the four ships blocked in Bastia was assured, Moby said.

The news was immediately communicated to passengers on board the Moby Zazà and Moby Vincent ferries, which remained in the port during the protest of the Corsican seafarers. In addition to the boats of the Italian company, two other ferries are also blocked in Bastia: the Pascal Lota of Corsica Ferries and the Pascal Paoli of Corsica Linea.
