Portugal - Telecom workers protest against contracting policy - August 31, 2017

Employees of national telecoms company PT have organised several actions. The PT trade unions said the fight is necessary to avoid a complete catastrophe within the company. A strike action in July involved workers of the various companies within the PT group and was the first in ten years. Employees are protesting against the transferring of workers contracts to service providing companies. A delegation representing employees in which several unions were represented handed in to the cabinet office a document on the situation at the privatised telecommunications company, stressing that some 1,400 jobs have been lost there in the past two years.
