The Intersindical-CSC and Intersindical Alternativa de Catalunya labour unions have called for a general strike in Catalonia, Spain on Friday, October 18, 2019 to demand the increase of the Catalan minimum wage and to denounce recent labour legislative reforms, perceived as harmful to workers.
Dock workers in the Port of Barcelona have confirmed their participation in this strike from 8:00AM to 8:00PM which will affect the operation of ships and the port on this day, leading to delays. Associated protests are likely across Catalonia during the strike. Heightened security measures, along with traffic disruptions, are expected near demonstration sites.
The VGL team will do all we can to minimise the impact on your shipments but if you have concerns, please contact your local VGL representative.
Thank you for your continued support.
