Portugal - Garbage collectors call off strike - November 30, 2016

Garbage collectors in the Algarve city of Portimão called off their planned strike. A source from the union representing the local refuse collectors said the action was scrapped after the city’s Water and Waste Company EMARP promised to honour workers’ demands of two consecutive days off a week from January 2017. The head of the union said a memorandum of understanding was signed between the union and the company’s administration to give workers two consecutive days off, including Sunday, during low season.
