Port workers’ unions in India are planning to go on an indefinite strike at each of the country’s 12 major seaports, on or after May 30th, 2018, according to the general secretary of the Water Transport Workers’ Federation of India.

The national co-ordination committee of six federations of major port workers also decided to call for a nation-wide one-day protest strike on May 28th against the attitude of the ministry of shipping and Indian Ports Association in settling the demands related to existing wage structures and other service conditions.

Delmar will continue to monitor and provide updates on the situation, and handle ocean freight cargo movements as events allow, however should work disruptions take place delays can be expected.
