Dockers join cargo handling group ICHCA

[ November 19, 2019   //   ]

The International Transport Workers’ Federation dockers’ section has joined the International Cargo Handling and Coordinating Association (ICHCA) to advance the rights and safety of workers globally. An ITF delegation recently attended ICHCA’s International 20/20 Cargo Vision Conference and Exhibition led by Steve Biggs from Unite the Union and Bob Dhaliwhal from ILWU-Canada where they discussed “the terrible safety record of the port industry globally”, and raised specific issues from safe work in ports, to lashing, digitalisation and automation.
