Portugal - Unions plan national demonstration followed by general strike - October 22, 2010

Public service unions in the Frente Comum have called a national demonstration of public administration workers on 6 November in protest at the government’s decision to freeze public sector pay, increase the VAT, freeze promotion and a range of other measures aimed at cutting costs. Unions will also be building for the general strike on 24 November called by both the CGTP and UGT trade union confederations in protest at the government’s austerity policies.
