    The wave of strikes in Thailand has spread to the port of Bangkok. Dock workers?

  • Description

    The wave of strikes in Thailand has spread to the port of Bangkok. Dock workers have been joined by tally-clerks in tying up 51 ships in the Chao Phaya River. The strike began last week; it's already believed to have cost the country hundreds of thousands of dollars. Goods are piling up on the wharves and there are fears of looting by waterfront gangs. Police reinforcements have been sent to the port area to protect ships and cargoes. Some ships are now being diverted to avoid hold-ups in Thailand. Negotiators between ship owners and dick workers continue deadlocked with the strikes appealing for government intervention. The new Thai government continues to protest against the rising tide of industrial disputes which followed the overthrow of the military regime last October. The emphasis so far has remained on conciliation.
