Dockers organising against all odds

Bilal Malkawi introduces a session on GNT unions and regional standards for dockworkers. 

Sharon James, ITF dockers secretary explains that Global Network Terminal operators (GNTs) dominate the port industry. Their strength can be demonstrated by APMT which has 60 terminals around the world. "It important for port workers to set standards and be organised. We must be clear, 80% of large terminals are run by private companies which need to be watched as growth is expected at the expense of state-owned and private ports."

She continues "This region has had successes  in Aqaba port, Bahrain which is close to an agreement, as well as Tangiers and Egypt. These unions are organising and mobilising for rights."
