The port industry worldwide has undergone major changes in recent years, and new cargo-handling techniques have had a profound impact on dockworkers? employment and working conditions. This report traces the technical and economic changes in the port sector, and the institutional and social repercussions. In line with the ILO?s attention to the special situation of dockworkers, it examines measures taken by ILO member States to apply the provisions of the Dock Work Convention (No. 137), and Recommendation (No. 145), 1973, and the difficulties of their application.
