Prison guards set more strike days in December

Portugal’s prison guards are to strike from 24 to 27 December, adding that there would be more strike-days until the end of the year and a slow-down during 2019, the head of the union said.

After a 16-hour vigil in front of the Belém Palace in Lisbon, Jorge Alves, from the National Union of the Prison Guard Corps (SNCGP), said the notice of the strike was to be followed and that, “if everything stays the same,” despite meetings scheduled for next week, “strike notice from 28 to 31 December will follow.”

The prison guards are demanding a review of their professional status.
