Portugal -TAP workers agree, ground handlers strike -April 01, 2013

Transport workers at airline TAP as well as the railroads had planned to strike from the 21 to 23 March, protesting against the budget cuts and demanding the resignation of the government. Following a range of emergency meetings, however, TAP management and the eight unions representing its workers came to an agreement that led to the cancellation of the strike. In the meantime the employees of the ground-handling unit of Azores regional airline SATA decided to strike in a protest against cuts in overtime and holiday pay, which they say violates existing accords between the company and its workers.
