The strike of the workers planned for today and tomorrow at piers II and III of the Piraeus Container Station was officially suspended, as announced by the ENEDEP union, a while ago during the general assembly.

The union will invite Cosco to an out-of-court debate on the draft collective labor agreement they have proposed next Monday.

The workers demanded all this time “to clarify the case of the accident of Dimitris Daglis, to create a health and safety committee, to stop the counter shifts at 12 o’clock, six positions, six people per shift in each position (out of four) and to sign a BCC that meets modern needs “.

Finally, Cosco, after the intervention of the Ministry of Shipping and the business entities of Piraeus, accepted a series of basic requests. In particular, it accepted the implementation of the five-post post, the abolition of counter-shifts and the establishment of a health and safety committee. The debate will therefore now focus on the BCC.

“If what has been agreed is not kept, we will go into conflict. What has been agreed must be implemented today,” he said during the general assembly.

At the same time, congestion problems in the largest Greek port remain. According to information from, about 30 container vessels, mother vessels and feeders, have formed “queues”, waiting to be serviced, in the aftermath of the closure of the two piers last week.
