Workers at Haifa Port imposed a go-slow today despite a Labor Court ruling forbidding sanctions.
Workers at Haifa Port imposed wildcat industrial sanctions today in the course of unloading the Gunvor Maersk, which is at the port as part of the strategic line of the M2 shipping consortium of the world's two largest shipping companies, Maersk and MSC.
Work on the ship by the A shift this morning has been proceeding at just 50% of normal output.
The wildcat action comes just a week after the president of the Haifa Labor Court absolutely prohibited sanctions at Haifa Port in a hearing on a work dispute declared by the Histadrut (General Federation of Labor in Israel), and ordered the workers to maintain full and normal work until they obtained a different ruling, if any.
The Histadrut was surprised by the port workers' sanctions, and the cause is still unclear. www.globes.co.il/...
