Maritime Ports Authority workers strike

Sudanese port authority paralyzed in protest against the “monopoly” of the Ministry of Finance. Workers called on the Sovereignty Council to intervene in the crisis, ceasing work at the Red Sea ports for 24 hours. The strike opposes the Ministry’s interference in the independent authority responsible for port management, leading to the integration of some departments into the Ministry of Finance. The workers argue this violates the terms of service for the port authority and express dissatisfaction with unfair decisions. They warned of a general strike if the Ministry’s decisions are not revoked within 72 hours. The port workers also criticized the Minister of Finance’s decision to stop allocating neglected port goods, emphasizing potential negative impacts on suppliers and calling for intervention from the Sovereignty Council.
