Spanish opposition parties voted down a government decree aimed at reforming restrictive labor practices at the country's ports, marking a setback for Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy as he tries to find allies in a fractured parliament.With 350 votes cast in total, the bill was rejected after 175 voted against the decree, 142 were in favor while there was 33 abstentions.The European Commission, which had suspended fines when it appeared the Spanish government was nearing a reform, has suggested these might restart if the bill did not progress through parliament.Dockers unions said that they had cancelled all planned strikes following the vote.
