In a press release, the trade union, International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) writes that it reacts “angrily to reports that trade union representatives’ phone calls had been bugged by their employers at the port of Los Angeles”. The accusation is made following the eruption of a strike in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach last week.

“These are extremely serious charges. The world leadership of the dockers’ and seafarers’ unions of the ITF resolve to give full support and solidarity to the ILWU (International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Ed.) members affected. The company concerned is part of the Maersk international group, where there is an established dialogue, so the ITF will be urgently seeking high level meetings with them to find explanations and a functional resolution of the matter”, ITF President, Paddy Cumlin, says according to the press release.
