Bulk Carrier Remains at Anchorage
Monday, November 27, 2000
The Hong Kong-flag bulk carrier Maritime Talent remains at anchorage in Narvik, Norway following a labor union boycott, Reuters reported. The 47,574-dwt vessel arrived in Narvik last Thursday.
However, following a boycott by the LKAB labor union, the vessel lost its loading turn and had to remain at anchorage, Reuters added.
Reuters said that the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) had demanded an agreement be signed with the Norwegian Seamen's Union.
