Nurses to strike next month

Portugal’s nurses are to strike next month on 13 and 14 October to demand the reinstating of a 35-hour work week.

According to the sector union, nurses and union members will also be gathering outside the Ministry for Health on 7 October.

Union leaders say they are tired of inconclusive meetings with the Ministry and the dragging on of the employment status of nurses.

They say they consider the situation unfair and unaffordable as well believing it jeopardises the safety and quality of health services.
