Strikes affecting port of Lisbon
  • Portugal
  • March 30 2016

Strikes are frequent in the port of Lisbon. The main point of tension is the legal guarantee for the exclusive use of a unionised labour force by port operators. Port workers argue that the guarantee is essential to safeguard their rights, working conditions and salaries; whereas port operators complain that the protection of port workers and frequency of union action reduce the port's competitiveness.
