Portugal -Teachers to strike on exams days -May 20, 2013

Nine trade unions representing educational staff have threatened to derail centralised tests throughout the country by announcing a strike on two exam days in June. Unions have stated the teachers have nothing left to lose and will strike one more time before the summer holiday months, when they will be left without leverage due to schools being closed. The strike hits the examination processes in secondary schools, including those pupils taking their final year exams.
