Portugal - Union pleased at support for national strike - September 22, 2010

The STAL local government union believes that the public sector pay freeze and other attacks on local government workers have resulted in a high level of support for the one-day national strike on 20 September. The union says that workers supported the strike even in areas where it is not so strong. The strike was in protest at government policies but in particular at its attempts to undermine collective bargaining in local government and to impose new working time regulations (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 July-August 2010).
