The Portuguese and British trade unions signed a co-operation (28 August), aimed at ensuring Portuguese migrant workers in the UK can join unions and enforce their rights at work. The agreement will help to prevent the exploitation of migrants and the undercutting of existing workers’ wages. The protocol also covers Portuguese speakers from non-European countries, such as Angola and Brazil, who are working in the UK. Unions will seek to recruit and represent these migrant workers, and a guide to workplace rights in Portuguese will be posted on the TUC website.
