the International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) has exported the EU commission not to put to risk the current social dialogue in the ports. Today, to conclusion of a reunion to London between the representatives of the harbour workers and the marine ones of the unions that are under responsibility of ITF, a radical re-examination of the management from the Commission of vital the national and international resources is sped up. "The last answer of the EU commission to the premature one and justified refusal of its packages for the ports - it has denounced Terje Samuelsen, harbour working president of the ITF section and harbour president of the section of the European Transport Workers' Federation - seems to be that to promptly activate procedures of infraction against those ports in which the social dialogue between union and employers it works well. We do not know if one is behaving like the vixen with the grape or if features of the intention to smuggle a new package on the ports with another name, but is putting to risk all a model of dialogue that has happened and is productive". "The harbour workers of all. Europe - it has emphasized - will continue to insist remembering to the EU commission the saying "if it is not broken, not to fix it"".

Seen the infraction procedures that have been, or is about to be, under way against a sure number of European governments, included Spain and Belgium, times to threaten the current rights of the harbour workers;
expresses regret because over the last few years a climate of denunciation against the organizational models of the harbour job in Europe is fed;
is condemned attacks it direct and indirect in it confronts of the right and the capacity of the counterfeit in the field;
expresses deep worry for the total responsibility and transparency lack approximately the modalities with which it is possible to start an infraction procedure, with anonymous denunciations that can be carried out through an Internet site;
denunciation a disinformation reported to well organized ports in Europe, than contrarily to allegated how much from some you leave, is convenient, efficient, has a high rate productivity and supplies a remarkable contribution to the economy, is on a national level that European;
makes sure the constant support to the European unions of the harbour workers who beat for the conditions of job and the rights of their associates;
invites the EU commission, the governments and the European employers to act in transparent way and good faith, to abstain itself from actions that they would threaten are the workers and their unions, that they are fundamental social parts, are the social and on a national level European dialogue; and
the EU commission, the governments and the European employers are invited to concentrate themselves rather on like facing the arranged impact of the insufficient increase of the traffics, the automation and the excess of ability in the European ports, and to work with the unions in order to reduce lessened the relative social consequences."
