The IDC stands in solidarity with the ILWU in their West Coast contract negotiations with PMA which started in May 2014 and have been extended since July 1 when the contract expired.
The IDC fully endorses the opposition of both European and Canadian dockworker and maritime trade unions to CETA - the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) which will clearly damage and destroy work places in the maritime industry at both sides of the Atlantic.
The IDC 6th General Assembly held in Tenerife on 30 September-1 October 2014 has unanimously passed a motion in support of the locked out workers in Mosjøen, Norway. The dockers in the local MIT terminal (Mosjøen Industri Terminal) have been locked out from their workplaces since 8 May 2014. The IDC has also called on their affiliates to join the rally that will be taking place in Mosjøen on 18 October 2014 at 12.00.
