Show of solidarity by Maltese port workers

Maltese Port Workers today joined other European Port Workers  in a solidarity strike and laid down their tools for an hour at The Grand Harbour and at Malta Freeport.
The solidary strike was ordered by the International Dockworkers Council (IDC) in support of the Portugese port workers in their fight against the new Ports Law. The stoppage also coincided with the European Ports Policy Review Conference which is meeting today in Brussels. The conference is being organised by the European Commission.
Malta Dockers Union President Joe Saliba and Secretary Clinton Sammut Union are participating in this conference, where they are opposing attempts by the Commission to legislate European port labour services.
