  3. Strike at Icelandic aluminium smelter

    The planned strike by workers at the Rio Tinto Alcan aluminium smelting plant in Straumsvik, Iceland went ahead February 23. Those striking are from the export section. Aluminium smelting continued, but the company was not able to ship finished products. As the strike began, pickets prevented Rio Tinto management members trying to carry out their work duties loading aluminium onto boats in the harbour.

    Negotiations between the Hlif union and Alcan management have been taking place since 2014. A strike threat in the smelting department last December was called off as workers were persuaded to continue negotiations.
