Ship Allowed To Leave Sweden After Staff Wage Hike

Published onsdag 20 oktober 2004 kl 13.10

A South Korean cargo ship that had been blocked from leaving a port in Sweden by the International Transport Workers Federation was allowed to leave on Tuesday after the crew’s wages were increased nearly fourfold.

The ITF and the South Korean shipping company Cido Maritime signed an agreement giving the 22 crew members a minimum wage equivalent to 11,000 Swedish kronor a month before tax , compared to about 3,000 kronor previously.

The ship, the Pos Dignity, had been blocked in the northern port of Luleå since Friday. It’s now on its way to Saint Petersburg in Russia.
