All of a sudden, the Stevedores have called strike today afternoon LT for undetermined time in protest against the new port law (MP 595) once the Government is not willing to insert the laborers affiliated to the Syndicate of the Stevedores on the scope of the jobs of the private terminals.
A meeting is expected within tonight in an attempt to reverse such situation.
For the time being, loading operations of bagged sugar vessels have already been affected. On the other hand, cargo operations of the bulk sugar vessels still flowing normally i.e. without any delays or even interruptions.
Needless to mention we will be following-up the above matter very closely and reverting on developments!
Keeping you duly posted !
