After the industrial conflict between the government and Portugal Airlines (TAP) workers culminated in threats of a Christmas strike, talks have been resumed. The government will maintain a 34% stake in the company and plans imposing a ban on mass layoffs as a condition of the sale. An agreement (with the trade unions) guarantees that there will be no collective layoffs for a certain period of time - for 30 months or as long as the state has a stake in the company after this privatisation, whatever is the longest.
