Portugal -Dock workers strike extended -November 8, 2012

Dock workers extended a strike in at least four ports until 28 November as they protest against a plan to change labour rules. The strike, which began before the government approved a draft law on 20 September to make employment practices in the sector more flexible and reduce exporting costs, will continue until the government and unions reach an agreement.
