Anesco Rejects Stevedores Proposal

June 21 2017, posted by admin

After several hours of assembly last Fraday, Anesco representatives informed the employers that they are rejecting the proposal presented by the stevedores’ unions last Tuesday. Anesco’s representatives state that the main reason why they cannot accept it is because they found at least three points where the stevedores’ proposal could go against the competence laws. With this notice and the past announcement of the union’s decision to hold additional strikes, it seems conflict between the stevedores and their employers will remain. Scheduled strikes will continue as announced.
