Grain workers strike impacts soybeans

December 31, 2017 |

In Argentina, grains workers started a 48-hour strike in the city of Rosario, Argentina’s busiest port where 80% of Argentina’s agricultural exports are sent from on cargo ships headed to the shipping highways and byways of the South Atlantic. As the largest exporter of soymeal livestock feed and major supplier of corn and raw soybeans, this could impact prices on those commodities.

The grain inspectors and crushers called the strike after an explosion killed a worker and amidst safety concerns in the busy port, Guillermo Wade, manager of the Chamber of Port and Maritime Activities, told Hellenic Shipping News. The strike includes all workers at the Timbues, San Lorenzo and General San Martin port facilities and was announced by the URGARA labor union which represents grains and oilseed inspectors, according to Hellenic Shipping News.
