Portugal -Postal workers strike -October 25, 2013

Postal workers are on strike to protest against the upcoming sell up of 70% of the national mail service CTT - Correios de Portugal. Postal workers will be walking off the job for 24 hours, which will signal the start of another series of strikes against austerity. Centre of the strikes that will continue from 31 October to 9 November is the privatisation of many state companies that the government promised in exchange for the 2011 bail-out.
