Portugal - Public sector unions protest lack of social dialogue - June 21, 2010

Four days of trade union demonstrations around the country lead up to the delivery of a protest letter to the prime minister on 17 June by public sector trade unions in the FESAP federation. The unions have attacked the government’s plans to freeze public sector pay and its other proposals for public spending. The unions are particularly angry about the failure of the government to maintain any process of social dialogue.
