Large participation in strike action

Portugal’s largest trade union has this morning estimated that participation in today’s one-day strike by civil servants varies from between 80 and 100 percent.

According to the CGTP, industrial action overnight has so far affected rubbish removals, hospitals and fire departments.

The union said that the strike will this morning go on to affect schools, health and social security services and judicial workers.

The action has been called to demand higher wages, automatic promotions, the maintenance of the 35-hour working week and a change to the new law with regards to the sacking of workers without just cause.
