Alva Maersk stopped in Gothenburg lacking the ITF agreement
The "Alva Rickmers" which was replacing the "Majestic Maersk" as long as it berthed in Copenhagen, was stopped by dockworkers in Gothenburg on Sep 23, 2013 because it does not have an ITF agreement. Already on Sep 22 dockers went on board the ship in Aarhus to ask for an ITF agreement. But the ship which is registered in the Marshall Island, had no agreement. The International Transport Workers' Federation ITF then gave a Notice of Warning to the ship owner, and dockers in Aarhus contacted their colleagues in Gothenburg. Only after the dockers had received a guarantee from Maersk Line that the "Alva Rickmers" immediately would enter into an ITF agreement, dockers resumed dockers their work.
