Portugal -Health workers suspend historic strike -April 02, 2015

The decision of the health technicians to call an unlimited stoppage reflects deep discontent at worsening pay and conditions.

Healthcare technicians have suspended a planned open-ended strike, after the government agreed to union demands to reopen negotiations on salary and career structures. Thus, the trade unions have achieved one of their first objectives, the resumption of the negotiations with the health ministry that broke down in July 2014. The decision of the health technicians to call an unlimited stoppage reflects deep discontent at worsening pay and conditions. Career structures and salary rates have been effectively frozen since 1999.
