HK Container Terminal Strikers Camp on Owner's Doorstep

South China Morning Post
Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Striking dockers step up their action outside owner Li Ka-shing's office building to urge Asia's richest man to intervene.

According to the South China Morning Post research has shown that the industrial action could have cost the port operator, Hutchison Port Holdings Trust, HK$100 million in revenue since the strike began.

The dockers, on their 21st day off the job, moved their base from the Kwai Tsing Container Terminals after they failed to resolve their pay dispute at a recent meeting with Global and Everbest Port Services.
