Portugal - Massive gap between government and public sector unions - February 15, 2010

The SINTAP public service trade union has reported on its first meeting with the government over the 2010 negotiations, saying that there is an enormous gap between union demands and what is on offer from the government. The union rejects the idea of a pay freeze, arguing that more efficient management can deliver cost savings to finance a pay rise. It also rejects the planned reforms to the pension system.
