Portugal -Unions mobilise for 11 February demonstration -January 25, 2012

Jointly with other unions affiliates to the GCTP-IN confederation, the STAL public service union is mobilising support for a national demonstration called by the confederation on 11 February. The demonstration is in protest at the austerity measures being imposed by the troika of European Commission, European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF). Workers in the public sector have seen their pay cut while more broadly workers are facing longer hours and shorter holidays (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 November and December 2011).
