Portugal -Four month strike threat -August 21, 2013

The National Civil Aviation Workers Union (SINTAC) has issued a strike action advance notice regarding a stoppage to be carried out by SATA Airlines’ workers from 1 September through 31 December. Workers have concerns over the labour policies drafted in a memorandum of understanding by SATA Airlines regarding working overtime, breaking time, on-call employee policies and working on holidays. The dispute involves a discrepancy over work benefits allowed to workers at the national carrier TAP Air Portugal that do not apply to employees at the Azores based SATA Airlines. Both companies are public, owned and run by the State.
