Truck drivers call off strike

A strike by truck drivers transporting hazardous materials was called off on Thursday morning following an agreement between unions, the national road transport association and the government.

The agreement was reached following a meeting during the early hours of Thursday morning.

The strike by trucks carrying hazardous materials, which began at midnight on Sunday, was called by their national union to demand recognition of a specific professional category for the purposes of pay, hours and benefits.

Portugal’s National Association of Fuel Resellers (ANAREC) on Wednesday estimated that more than half of the country's fuel stations were empty or almost out of stock.

Us truck drivers are treated like dirt, especially by unscrupulous operators and the their office staffs.
I don't blame those drivers in Portugal, I wish we were more corporative.
