The ETF, ITF and IDC have joined forces to support Spanish dockworkers whose jobs

are at risk because of attempts to reform the port labour system.

The three organizations have been working together since the opening of an EU

infringement procedure on freedom of establishment in ports against Spain back in

2013. Two weeks ago, the Spanish Government unilaterally presented a Royal

Decree on the reform, disregarding the result of previous negotiations between

social partners. Consequently the three organizations have engaged in a series of

actions to support the struggle of the Spanish dockers. Among these, an action day

was planned for the 10 March 2017, to coincide with the strike called by the Spanish

unions on the same day.

“Following discussions with our respective members, our three organizations have

decided to temporarily suspend the announced day of action. The Spanish unions

are making another attempt to see if they can succeed with negotiations and

political influence, and we fully respect this decision. Our actions are meant to

support them and we are obviously ready to rework our solidarity plans to meet the

needs of their revised strategy.” said ETF Dockers’ Section Chair

Terje Samuelsen.

The three organizations and their members in Europe and around the world are

maintaining all their political actions to support our Spanish Comrades.

Jordi Aragunde

, IDC General Coordinator added “We are certainly not dropping our

guard: we are all very busy supporting members in Spain. Our aim is to support

them gaining the right to a fair reform of port labour. They are not opposing the

reform, but some of the terms set by the government are not acceptable: we are

convinced port labour can be reformed without the need for huge job losses and

replacing stable employment with precarious jobs.”

Paddy Crumlin

, ITF President and Dockers’ Section Chair concluded “The global

dockers’ and transport workers’ family will continue to demonstrate tremendous

support to the Spanish dockers. This is an emblematic struggle against dogmatic

liberalization of labour, and it affects the labour movement as a whole. We are

following the developments in Spain very closely and are ready to support the

struggle through any lawful mea
