Ports and bus traffic affected as ACP workers join strike

Strike by Strikes: AKT Halts Operations at Ports and Buses in Protest of Government’s Extensive Weakening of Working Life

The stevedores will participate in strikes from Wednesday to Friday, effectively stopping operations at ports. In addition, the Auto- and Transport Workers’ Union (AKT) has announced that bus drivers and maintenance repair shop staff will also be participating in a political strike on Wednesday and Thursday, February 14th and 15th. The AKT strike is expected to affect approximately 10,000 employees.

According to the union’s press release, these strikes are in response to the government’s extensive weakening of working life. The AKT demands that the government engage in proper negotiations on plans to weaken working life in a tripartite manner with employees and employers.

The impact of the strike will be wide on bus traffic both locally and on long-distance routes. The AKT has given notice of political strikes to employers, leaving a significant impact on bus traffic.

The merit-based dismissal policy could also be scrapped, allowing for termination with a valid reason, making it uncertain how a small act may suffice for dismissal. Sickness pay when the first day of sick leave is unpaid and local bargaining threatening to undermine working conditions and collective agreements are being protested by AKT. Labor struggle work tasks, the failure of which would cause a danger to people’s lives, health or property are limited to the outside.
