In a statement, Metropolitano de Lisboa informs that, on both days, the forecast is that the transport service will only start at 10:30am.

In the note, the company “thanks its customers for understanding and regrets any inconvenience that these strikes may cause”.

ML workers have already carried out a partial strike (05:00-09:00) on March 11 and 18, alleging the “lack of working conditions in the drivers operational area.

Contacted today by the Lusa agency, Anabela Carvalheira, from the Federation of Transport and Communications Unions (FECTRANS), explained that this strike is based on the same assumptions as the two partial strikes held in March.

According to Anabela Carvalheira, the unions want the company to “put into practice a series of commitments made to workers a long time ago”.

Lusa also contacted ML to obtain a comment on this stoppage, but is still awaiting a response.

Metropolitano de Lisboa operates with four lines: Yellow (Rato-Odivelas), Green (Telheiras-Cais do Sodré), Blue (Reboleira-Santa Apolónia) and Red (Airport-São Sebastião), from 06:30 to 01:00 all the days.
