Portugal’s teachers striking on Easter Holiday activities

Portugal’s teachers will be striking on all school activities due to be staged during the Easter holidays.

According to a statement from the National Federation of Teachers (Fenprof), "this decision is due to the fact that some schools are calling teachers for activities and meetings to be held on days that should also be days of rest for teachers”.

The federation said the Easter break “is absolutely indispensable at this stage of the school year.”

Teachers have been striking against overtime, that is, all activities outside their 35-hour weekly schedule, for months.
