“The management of SNTSF/Fectrans (National Union of Railway Sector Workers/ Federation of Transport and Communications Unions) has decided to send a strike notice to CP, to IP-Infraestruturas, to IP-Telecom, to IP-Patrimóvel and IP-Engenharia, for the 9th of February, lasting 24 hours”.

At issue is the lack of response from the two companies to the salary enhancement proposals.

For the unions, the submitted proposals “fall far short” of the values needed to restore workers' purchasing power.
