German Courts Ban Further Labor Actions Until August 26

Ocean carriers are busy adjusting their networks in North Europe, after a two-day ‘warning strike’ by German port workers ended on Saturday.

Employers failed to get the third, and longest, warning strike stopped by the courts, but the courts did ban further industrial action until August 26, for further rounds of negotiations between the Central Association of German Seaport Companies (ZDS) and the union, ver.di.

“During this period, no further industrial action will be taken by ver.di with the plaintiffs’ employees,” said the labor court ruling. (source: The Loadstar)
