International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) has said its 700 affiliates will stand with the 560 Liverpool Dockers who the port owners are asking to take a pay cut
ITF quipped that the port owner made a £141 million profit in 2021 which it said it was 73 percent more than pre-pandemic era yet telling workers to take pay cut
The international Workers’ body has vowed to stay with the Liverpool dockers until they get a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.
“ITF leadership was in Liverpool this week to meet the 560 Unite the union Liverpool dockers who are striking for pay justice.
“The port’s owner made £141 million in profit last year – more than its entire wage bill. 73% more than pre-pandemic.
“Yet the company is telling these workers to take a real-terms pay cut. This is as UK inflation could hit 20% by January.
“ITF Dockers’ Section coordinator Enrico Tortolano was clear:
“You’ve got the support of the global dockers community. We stand together, and I’m with you right until victory.”
“The ITF – International Transport Workers’ Federation and our 700 affiliates will stand with the Liverpool dockers until they get a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.”
