Sweden - Dockers on strike at largest Scandinavian port - November 30, 2016

Dockers launched a strike in Gothenburg, Scandinavia's largest port, demanding better wages and working conditions. The dock workers' union announced on Facebook that no agreement had been reached with the management and added that the strike began at 2pm on that date. According to the employers' organisation, around half of all container traffic in Sweden passes through the Gothenburg port, operated by APM Terminals (Maersk Group). Only one third of the container traffic operated during the strike.
