The Congress of Deputies has narrowly passed a long-delayed reform of port operations, bringing regulation closer to that of the European Union though the overhaul has been slammed by unions that have threatened widespread strikes.
The decree, which was rejected the first time it was given to legislators in March, aims to liberalise hiring in a sector strictly controlled by the unions and comes after months of fines by the EU for not adhering to European regulation.
Members of parliament voted 174 for the reform and 165 against, with eight abstentions.
