Argentinean strike warning


Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has warned of a potential general strike in Argentina on April 10th that could affect services at a number of ports across the country.

According to ISS the strikes are set to start at midnight and continue over the next 24 hours.

The Union backed strike will see stoppages in various ports by truck, bus and train drivers, pilot boat masters, linesmen, tug boat operators and stevedores.

Protests are expected to affect all shipping operations at the Port of San Lorenzo-Rosario.

As such, transit routes at Zona comun and pilot boat operations through Rio de la Plata and the Parana River are set to be greatly affected.

Tug boat operatives and stevedores in the ports of Buenos Aires, Necochea and Bahia Blanca have also declared that they will be participating in the action.

General manager, ISS Argentina, Gabriel Curtarelli says “During the strike, we expect to see operations at San Lorenzo-Rosario delayed by a day. The strike will affect all cargoes destined for the port and ships will be required to remain at anchorage if they have been unable to berth prior to commencement of the strike.”

ISS will post regular updates in regards to services affected, over the course of the strike.
