Portugal - Trade union warns for transfer of bus company - September 30, 2016

The Federation of Transport and Communications Unions (Fectrans), the trade union representing transport workers, expressed ‘immense reservations’ regarding the transfer of Lisbon’s bus and tram operator to the city council. The union fears that the authority could in future move to subcontract such services and pleads for a good alternative, namely the creation of a Metropolitan Transport Authority for the management and organisation of the public service of the various companies.
