Strike called by Stevedores at Santos port.

Stevedores of Santos port called strike today which is affecting several operations/Ships in the harbor.

Such stoppage/strike resulting from imposition of Public Attorneys that no longer stevedore can work in double shifts i.e. restricting their journey/duty to a single shift composed of 6 hours and a minimum rest time of 11hours to be fulfilled in accordance with Brazilian Labor Laws.

Ships are suffering partial delays on their cargo operations (some Ships/terminals suffering heavier impacts and some other lighter ones.
But, depending on type of cargo/method of loading, maybe none).

According to their syndicate, such stoppage/strike initially for undetermined time i.e. until the Government decides to change its plans and make an agreement with them.
