Portugal -Porto labour tribunal refers public sector pay cuts to European Court of Justice -May 1, 2012

The Porto labour tribunal has referred a case of three trade unions against the Banco Português de Negócios to the European Court of Justice. The unions challenged pay cuts on the basis of equal treatment as well as being in violation of the right to working conditions that respect dignity. The pay cut was without consent and unexpected by the employees and puts at risk the standard of living and the financial commitments of employees and their families.
