450 port workers employed by Hongkong International Terminals (HIT) have compromised and accepted a pay increase worth 9.8%.

Originally the workers were looking for 20% increase since the start of their strike on 28th March.

HIT is owned by Hutchinson Port Holdings, who also own Felixstowe & Thamesport, were handling an average of 33,650 teu per day through Hong Kong prior to the strikes and only handling 25,000 teu per day during.

This latest strike action was by far the largest industrial action seen in Hong Kong port for decades.
