Shutdown of maritime traffic may affect 100,000 passengers

Viking Grace -risteilyalus.

The Finnish Seamen’s Union and the Finnish Engineers’ Association are threatening to start supportive action at 2 pm Thursday to stand alongside crews of Finland’s icebreaker fleet in their labour dispute with their employer, state-owned Arctia Shipping. If the sympathy strike proves necessary, it will extend the strike to every cargo ship sailing under the Finnish flag. This would potentially include the passenger cruise ships of Viking Line, Tallink Silja and Eckerö Line.
