The decision was taken at a meeting of the platform’s leadership, which is demanding the restoration of the 35-hour week (from 40 hours currently), an end to austerity-driven pay cuts, and a salary increase of 3.7%, equivalent to a minimum raise of €50 a month, as well as an end to the erosion of employment rights.
