Portugal - Teachers on strike - June 30, 2017

The education trade unions have organised a strike that came under strong pressure. A court decreed that minimum services had to be delivered on the day of the teachers’ strikes that coincided with school exam. The unions are demanding an elimination of precariousness of educational and non-educational staff, a defreeze of the career progression, the establishment of a retirement scheme and a harmonisation of working time. The unions also want to be involved in future education and training policy reforms.
