942 - 02/14 - Labour dispute - Mauritania
Club correspondents in Mauritania have informed us that there is an ongoing labour dispute in the port of Nouakchott, Mauritania.
The dispute is between the port labourers and a large sugar importer and involves arguments regarding whether containers offloaded in Nouakchott should be unstuffed in or out of the port.
As such, labourers are refusing to work on a vessel carrying a cargo owned by the sugar importer.
As a result, there is heavy congestion in the port and is leading to long delays for vessels and the situation is at a standstill.
