Strike action planned at Liverpool Port

Dockworkers at the Port of Liverpool are set to strike from Sept 19th – Oct 3rd over a pay dispute. Dialogue remains open between port authorities and Unite, and we are hoping this action can be averted. The Irish Exporters Association feel it is prudent to let all members know now, as such strike action could affect your export volume and supply chain (shipping and road transport).

The IEA are monitoring this situation closely for what impact it will have on Ireland, and for IEA members reliant on the Port of Liverpool. Should you have any concerns or queries, please make sure to contact your logistics provider/shipping company.
