Portugal - Six-day metro strike shelved - December 31, 2015

Employees of the Lisbon Metro system called off a six day partial strike due to begin on 9 December, following discussions with the transport company’s management. During a meeting of the trade union STTM, the majority of the employees voted against strike action following leader assurances that an understanding had been reached with the management. The two sides have agreed to meet for negotiations in the middle of January. According to the representative of Fectrans union, calling off the strike is a sign that unions are willing to negotiate and find the best solutions for a public company to deliver a public service of quality.
