Valencia, Spain (PortSEurope) April 25, 2019 – Spanish trade union CCOO (Confederacion Sindical de Comisiones Obreras) has called off the strike scheduled for April 26 in Spanish state-owned ports after the III Collective Labour Agreement for the sector was approved.
The Monitoring Commission of Collective Bargaining in Public Administrations has approved the validity of what was agreed at the negotiating table on April 23. Consequently, with this signature about 5,000 workers in the sector will have a new agreement.
The strike called by CCOO would affect the entire system of 28 Spanish state-owned ports. It was called due to the lack of response to the signing of the pre-agreement of the collective labour contract.
At the beginning of April, CCOO union called a strike of 24 hours in railway operators ADIF and ADIF Alta Velocidad (AV), as well as state-owned maritime rescue company Sasemar on April 17, coinciding with Holy Week, due to the blocked respective collective agreements, which was subsequently cancelled.
State-owned ports are managed by the government agency Puertos del estado and includes 46 ports of general interest, managed by 28 port authorities.
