Pan-India strike by port workers at major ports

The National Coordination Committee of India’s major port and dock worker federations has decided to call for a nationwide one-day strike which was scheduled on 28th May. Following a meeting with the Indian Ports Association (IPA), the proposed strike has been deferred until 20th June. The strike aimed to challenge the administration approaches on privatization of ports and wage increments.

Main reasons for the strike are demands to modify the current wage structure and provide more beneficial conditions, including annuity benefits. Attempts of the unions to search for the intercession of the Ministry of shipping (MOS) to determine the issues have been futile as no talk has occurred with the Ministry even after rehashed requests.

The following ports will be affected on the days of the strike:

  • Jawaharlal Nehru Port (Nhava Sheva)
  • Mumbai Port
  • Chennai Port
  • Tuticorin Port
  • Kolkata Port
  • Cochin Port
  • Vishakhapatnam Port
  • New Mangalore Port
  • Mormugao Port Goa
  • Paradip Port Odisha
  • Kandla Port Gujarat
  • Ennore Port Chennai
  • Port Blair Port
