Services have resumed at Ikonion Container Terminal in Piraeus - 20/10/09
Services have resumed at Ikonion Container Terminal following a decision by Piraeus port workers to suspend their strikes until 2 November and return to work.  The port workers were on strike for 17 days in protest over a deal made last year awarding management of two of the three terminals at Ikonion Container Terminal to Chinese company COSCO.  The strikes were suspended after the government promised to renegotiate the terms of the deal but, depending on the progress of these negotiations, strikes may resume on 2 November.  In the meantime, it will be several days before the backlog of containers is cleared at the port.
