Dockworkers Union members set for July strikes at Sweden's Gothenburg and Helsingborg ports
Members of the Dockworkers Union are set to strike from Thursday 6 July to Tuesday 11 July at both the Gothenburg Ro-Ro (roll-on roll-off) and the port of Helsingborg. In addition to this, Sweden's port of Halland will also put a freeze on any new hires, overtime and any new contract workers.
The industrial action aims to improve the financial security of the Dockworkers, with the union demanding that a social fund is established in order to aid any employers that decide to support employees that need rehabilitation and are often overlooked following a sustained period of illness or injury.
We will contact customers regarding any affected bookings and continue to monitor the situation closely.
