Portugal -Public transport strike -January 16, 2014

The public transport trade unions organised a strike to protest against austerity policies passed by the conservative government of Pedro Passos Coelho which are part of the 2014 budget, layoffs and pay cuts in a new law on public companies which became effective in December. Union sources said almost all workers participated in the strike. The walkout is part of a round of initiatives first launched in October 2013; it is the third protest by public transport workers since the beginning of this year (the others took place on January 2 and 9). Another partial strike has been scheduled for January 23.
