In an escalation of the Global Network Terminals campaign, Egyptian DP World Wharfies near Suez staged a three day sit-in and are on an indefinite strike protesting DPW's reneging on a recently negotiated Collective Agreement.
This is another example of the need for international, coordinated action against global companies.
At the same time, Dutch dockers are fighting APM terminals for wage and retirement justice and workplace safety in the highly automated Port of Rotterdam.
