Portugal -Strike in Navegadores hotel -August 9, 2012

Workers at the Navegadores hotel in Monte Gordo have gone on strike to protest against unpaid overtime and premium pay. The Algarve Hotels Union also presented the strike as a protest against revised labour legislation, which facilitates easy hiring and firing, eliminates public holidays, reduces paid holidays and deregulates worker’s timetables by annulling or suspending the agreements made during collective hiring.
