Unions report a mobilisation of above 80% in the 13 March civil servants’ strike. The workers are striking to demand higher wages, accumulation of tenure, the maintenance of the 35-hours working week and a halt to a draft law that would allow workers to be fired without just cause. The strike affected rubbish removals, hospitals, fire departments, school, health and social services and judicial workers.
