Firefighters call strike to protest against government proposals



Portugal's professional firefighters have announced they are to go on strike from 19 December to 2 January to protest against the government's proposals regarding their pension scheme.

The announcement was made during a protest last night outside Parliament which at times threatened to boil over.

The 15-day strike will cover the festive period and is aimed at challenging low wages and the legal retirement age of fire-fighters.
