Portugal - Trade union bulletin assesses role of unions - May 31, 2017

Trade union SINTTAV publishes a regular information bulletin with news (in Portuguese) about negotiations and activities in different companies. In one of the May issues of the bulletin the role of trade unions is assessed. Trade union activities find their origin in the unbalanced power relations in our economies. Without unionised workers, there would be no unions. Basic tasks are the defence of workers’ interests, collective bargaining, trade union intervention at company level and collective representation and redress. The last task is also important because individual workers otherwise would face unbearable costs.
