Portugal - Health workers launch strike action - August 31, 2016

Health workers will be staging two days of protests from July 28, though doctors are not participating in this latest call for industrial action. Five districts, including the Algarve, will be affected by the strike action for a period of 48 hours, while the remaining districts will join in the action from July 29. The strike is being called by the trade unions to demand that all workers are given 35-hour working weeks, paid overtime and that additional human resources are hired to assist existing staff contingents at hospitals and health centres.
