New Years Ferry Strike
Some New Year’s partying in Sweden may have to be rescheduled. The Merchant Marine Officer’s Association says it will launch a strike from midnight on New Years Eve against the ferry company Scandlines.
The conflict involves one ferry on the line between Helsingborg in southern Sweden and Elsinore in Denmark and three ferries between southern Sweden and Germany.
The union says it taking action because of stalled talks on next year’s salaries.
