Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), is advising of a potential general strike in Argentina all day Thursday, April 10, 2014.


The Union backed strike will see stoppages in various ports by truck, bus and train drivers, pilot boat masters, linesmen, tug boat operators and stevedores.


The strike is expected to affect all shipping operations in the port of San Lorenzo-Rosario. Particularly affected will be transits at Zona comun and pilot boat operations through Rio de la Plata, and the Parana River.


In addition, tug boat operatives and stevedores in the ports of Buenos Aires, Necochea and Bahia Blanca have declared that they will join the strike.


Gabriel Curtarelli, General Manager, ISS Argentina, said, “During the strike, we expect to see operations at San Lorenzo-Rosario delayed by a day. The strike will affect all cargoes destined for the port and ships will be required to remain at anchorage if they have been unable to berth prior to commencement of the strike.”


ISS Argentina will continue to monitor events and the effect of the strike on the country’s ports on behalf of shipowners and operators, and will post any news updates to the company website.
