Portugal -Underground stands still -November 02, 2013

In protest at the right-of-centre government's draft state budget for 2014, which includes moves to farm out concessions to private investors, as well as reducing state subsidies for the sector, a series of actions is planned in the transport sector in the coming days. The Lisbon Metro closed in the run-up to a strike that the union representing its workers has scheduled on 31 October. Earlier on, Lisbon’s metro system was shut down on 8 October for a strike for the fourth time this year. The workers were protesting against the austerity politics. Metro workers appear to be leading the way, as more public sector unions have announced protests for later this month.
