“We are trying to propose mechanisms for certifying temporary work companies, so that only the best operate in the territory, and for monitoring and regulating service providers”, said the association's official.

The president of the Association of Horticulturists, Fruit Growers and Floriculturists of the Municipalities of Odemira and Aljezur argued to the Lusa agency ( AHSA), Luís Mesquita Dias, said: “I do not want to classify service providers as dishonest and others as honest, but we are aware that the risks of non-compliance are greater in one type of contract than in another and that is what we are working on and raising awareness among our associates”.
