Portugal’s hotel and catering workers have this week embarked on what they term a ‘fortnight of fights’ for more rights and better salaries.

Organised by the FESAHT Federation for Portuguese Agriculture, Food and Drink, Hospitality and Tourism Unions, the nationwide actions include a strike by Faro Hospital canteen workers.

According to Francisco Figueiredo, head of the Federation, “thousands of workers [in the sector] have been the victims of companies taking advantage of the pandemic to strip them of rights and income”.
