Ashdod Port: Court ordered workers to cease sanctions

Management of the Ashdod Port turned to the Labor Courts after workers invoked a partial strike on Monday morning.

 

Port's workers have shut down the computer system of the container terminal, causing a severe slowdown in work. Sanctions included that incoming trucks bearing containers were not allowed into the port after 6:00 a.m and a slowdown in worker activity at the port.

 

The Labor Court presided by Judge Soffer has ordered Ashdod Port workers to cease the sanctions they have applied since Sunday, and has told the workers and the port's management to conduct negotiations for two weeks on the matters in dispute between them.

 

The reason for the latest disruption is the intention of the port's management to replace the secretary of the workers committee, who, according to a State Comptroller's report, ranked 78 job candidates who had no family connection with existing port workers at the bottom of her rankings of their qualifications by giving them the minimum possible score of 1, while raising the chances of those who did have family connections by giving their qualifications a score of 10.
