Labour dispute ends at Sri Lankan port terminal
South Asia Gateway Terminals (SAGT), a private container terminal in Sri Lanka’s Port of Colombo, said it had ended a dispute with dock workers over bonus pay that had disrupted operations.
“Following 13 days of operational disruption at its berth, team SAGT made a groundbreaking deal that brought a mutually satisfactory end to the stand-off,” Erwin Haaze, SAGT chief executive, said in a statement.
The disruption caused the diversion of several vessels to the two other terminals in the port.
The company said it expects to ramp up to its usual high-productivity benchmarks within 48 hours and normalise its berthing window protocols within this week.
