Portugal - Metro workers come to a deal - November 30, 2016

Lisbon Metro workers decided in a plenary session to sign the Metro de Lisboa Company Agreement that will regulate their working relationship, bringing an end to five years of negotiations. The Federation of Transport Unions (FECTRANS) announced that the workers voted in the majority for the unions to act as representatives in signing the company agreement with the Board of Directors. The agreement is scheduled to be signed at a next meeting on 9 November. The unions will ‘continue to fight’ for other rights including wage increases as the workers have not had an increase since 2007, and have had no career progression.
