Portugal - Union calls for bank nationalisation - January 31, 2017

One of the main bank worker unions added its voice to the growing chorus of those calling for the ‘temporary nationalisation’ of Novo Banco. The Bank of Portugal announced earlier in January that the US investment fund Lone Star, which also owns Vilamoura, was best placed to buy Novo Banco and it would be invited for further negotiations. The union stressed the importance of the bank for the domestic market.
