Submitted on February 24, 2017 by Jordi Baez of Newblock in Spain

Dear fellow partners:

After several meetings among Unions and the Infrastructures Ministry in Spain, a strike has been finally called in all Spanish ports, as of 6th March.  If this strike is not called off, it will distort all handling operations, vessel calls and sailings.  We expect serious delays, call cancellations and backlogs.

A 2014 E.U. Directive is now mandatory and the Spanish Government has just signed the bill today; thus we do not expect changes in the Unions position. Please feel free to contact us for updated information.
