The statutory body of SEAL, representing port workers and all other members of the SEAL, who work in the Ports of Lisbon, Setúbal, Sines, Figueira da Foz, Leixões, Caniçal, Ponta Delgada and Praia da Vitória, today declared a strike to provide supplementary work in these ports, from 08:00 hours on August 13 until 08:00 hours on September 10.
According to a press release sent by the union, “the growing proliferation of anti-union practices in the various Portuguese ports, which are extremely serious in the port of Leixões, are the reasons for this declaration of the strike. Also the port of Caniçal, aggravated by the framework of retaliation by the employers who, in response to the day of struggle motivated by the situations of Leixões and Caniçal, opted to tear up an agreement signed last month regarding the port of Lisbon. ”
In his view, “this is yet another of the many forms of harassment on dockworkers, coupled with harassment and coercion, from bribery to discrimination, from threats of dismissal to wage blackmail, ‘criminal’ behavior not only to put workers against each other, but to prevent them from freely and conscientiously organizing themselves. ”
“Of these illegitimate behavior on the part of companies, often for the own benefit of some agents in the field to the detriment of the quality and productivity of services provided in ports, results in a greater precariousness of the port workforce, with all the negative aspects associated with it , such as the absence of adequate vocational training and, consequently, the brutal increase in accident rates, a reality which puts at risk, not only their own, but also the whole set of port workers, equipment, installations and even ships and crews involved, “the statement said.
As a final note, the SEAL notes that in practice “for many workers, this strike will only be ‘symbolic’ since many of them have already exceeded the legal limits of the 250 hours of additional work a year, except in the port of Leixões where one simple opinion from the IMT – Institute of Mobility and Transport, was sufficient to derogate from mandatory regulations of the Labor Code and to consider that in the said port work on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays is not counted as additional work.
