Bilbao, Spain (PortSEurope) January 11, 2021 – The negotiation of the stowage of the port of Bilbao begins in a week with two scheduled meetings, the first in Bilbao and the second, with the Ministry of Labour in Madrid. First, unions and stowage companies of the Port of Bilbao will meet this Monday at Consejo de Relaciones Laborales (Labour Relations Council), in an appointment that was going to be on Thursday but was postponed to
this Monday. During this time, the union representatives have analyzed the latest proposal presented by the business side to try to solve the dispute in the sector, and tomorrow they will give their opinion on the employer’s document. Then, on Wednesday the 13th, the meeting is scheduled at the Ministry of Labour and Social Economy, in Madrid, although the snowfall caused by the storm casts doubt on the date, with communications with the capital cut off. At the beginning of last December, the stevedores decided to abandon the strike that they had been holding since October 9 and returned to work after having accepted unions and companies “the roadmap” of negotiations to resolve the conflict proposed by said Ministry.
