Trade unions have held mass protests against further pay cuts and the privatisation of water. The unions also demanded an increase in the minimum wage and a clear commitment to the 35-hour working week. Earlier this year, public sector unions managed to stop a reform instating a 40-hour working week in local government. However, the deal protecting the 35-hour working week has still not been published by the government.
