Dockers in Dublin are into to the eighth week of strike action against job cuts at one of Whittakers’ companies, Marine Terminals Limited (MTL).

Some 70 workers say the company is also trying to reduce wages and drive down conditions.

Bosses have brought in scab workers from elsewhere in the Republic, as well as Britain and Northern Ireland.

Last week saw over 600 workers storm the company offices as part of a solidarity march for the strikers.
