Postal workers call festive season strike

Portuguese postal workers are going on strike on the Thursday and Friday before Christmas to demand the renationalisation of the company and better working conditions, one of the unions that called the industrial action said on Monday.

The Socialist-backed union (SINDETELCO) has handed in a strike notice for 21 and 22 December for the “Reversal of the privatisation of CTT (Portuguese Post Office), defending jobs and better working conditions.

A Communist-backed union has also called for a strike the same two last working days before Christmas for the same reasons.


Another strike? What a surprise! The socialist union should not worry. With e mail and social media, these workers job are slowly becoming obsolete anyway.
