COCHIN DOCK STRIKE ENDS

Dockworkers at India’s Port of Cochin called off their strike late Wednesday afternoon; following intervention by local state government authorities reports the Journal of Commerce. The Trade Union Coordination Committee, representing all major labour groups in the port, launched a 72-hour strike Tuesday demanding job protection for some 4,000 workers who were likely to be rendered jobless with the commissioning of a new private container terminal. Union leaders said state authorities agreed to address the workers’ grievances through further negotiations with port management and terminal operator DP World.
