Portugal -Workers protest against privatisation of water supply -April 15, 2013

Workers at publicly owned water company Aguas de Portugal (AdP) are protesting against the announced privatisation of its services. Trade union spokespersons have argued water supply, sewerage and waste services are services of general interests that must not be left to the market. The workers furthermore protest against AdP’s attempts to repudiate its collective agreement in order to be more attractive to investors.
