Port of Tahiti on Strike

Tahitipresse reported that the Port of Tahiti is paralyzed due to a strike. The information was only available on their French language page. Using freetranslation.com this is what I've come up with:

"This strike movement paralyzes the activity of the harbor, without nevertheless that the locking be total since shuttles were able to take passengers heading for Moorea, this morning and in fine afternoon. But the ferries transporting freight and the schooners for the islands had to remain at quay. A cruise steamship, awaited Tuesday morning to the harbor nevertheless should be able to approach."

The dock workers delegation and the government ministers are in negotiations.
