Portugal - Immigration workers on strike - January 31, 2017

The union representing SEF immigration officers said that a rotating strike initiated earlier this month, which will last until the summer, has enjoyed strong participation. The industrial action has seen 86 percent of administration workers lay down their pens. The strikes will take place once a month at each centre across the country and are in protest against rights they enjoyed up until 2008 with regards to their status as non-law enforcement workers.
