Container ship amidst Worker's Union conflict
On May 14, 2020, the Port Workers' Union was told that the 'Wes Janine', which had been loaded by strike breakers in Lisbon, would call at the Skandia Container Terminal Gothenburg in the evening. In sympathy with the Portuguese trade union SEAL, the Port Workers' Union immediately issued an alert for blockade, and the union's members did not handle the conflict-affected goods. But APM Terminals, which has been operating the container terminal since 2012, relocated all port workers organized in the Port Workers' Union and instead let the staff from Adecco unload the ship. The fact that the ship could be loaded by strike breakers at all was related to the corona pandemic. The use of strike breakers is prohibited by law in Portugal. But when the Portuguese government suspended all conflict measures during the corona crisis, it suddenly became legal for the Turkish company Yilport to hire from staffing companies and push away the registered port workers - despite the trade union SEAL warning of strikes in Lisbon's port because of wage agreements. Another vessel, the 'Wes Gesa', may be on its way to Gothenburg. With more foresight it was hoped for a more efficient response, through a coordinated action with port workers in Aarhus.
