Portugal - Airport handling unions call 3-day strike for July - June 30, 2016

The trade unions representing handling and passenger assistance workers at the country’s airports – Faro, Porto, Lisbon, Beja, Madeira and the Azores – have announced a three-day-strike from 1 July. The strike is against the liberalisation of the handling sector, against the low salary model, and precarious employment conditions which have dragged on from year to year at national airports. The strike will affect leading handling companies Groundforce and Portway, but also covers employees of temping agencies and outsourced services working in the field.
