Portugal - Airport handling dispute not solved - August 31, 2016

A three-day-strike in the handling sector at the main airports from 1 July against the low salary model and precarious employment conditions was called off just before the start (dee our June Newsletter). However, the dispute seems not to be settled as a new strike was organised on 31 July by the Union of Workers of the Aviation and Airports (SITAVA), challenging that baggage handlers at the Portela Airport have not had a pay raise since 2008 and protesting against the privatisation of the sector.
