Portugal -New subway strike -June 28, 2015

Subway series of strikes against the looming privatisation of the network - motivated by concerns over pay and working conditions.

Subway workers in Lisbon are continuing a series of strikes against the looming privatisation of the network. The second strike in just over a week Friday closed services and came days after the centre-right government announced Spain's Grupo Avanza had won the bidding to run the Metropolitano de Lisboa. The strike was the eight in 2015 and is motivated by concerns over pay and working conditions, as well as the quality of services delivered, as a consequence of the privatisation of the subway.
