Workers Mollified, Zueitina Port Resumes Operations

The Zueitini port resumed operations last week after the port’s operator promised to meet the demands of Zueitini Worker’s Union, Bloomberg reports.

The port had been shut down by employees protesting working conditions and unpaid wages, Reuters reported.

According to the local union leader, Merhi Abridan, the workers were promised 20 months of back pay, annual leave, health insurance, and better maintenance of the port’s facilities, according to Bloomberg.

The port is an export terminal for Zueitina Oil Company.

Libyan crude output reached a four year high in July, Bloomberg reports, but has, since then, experienced protests and disruptions at its largest field, Sharara.
