Santos Agência CNT de Notícias

Port workers with the Settaport union went on strike Sunday against the Ecoport Santos container terminal at Brazil’s Port of Santos – the largest port on the continent. The strike was launched as a result of Ecoport laying off 200 personnel with an additional 200 likely by year end.

Most of Ecoport’s 1,200 workers are unionized with Settaport.
