Portuguese border officials have cancelled a two-day strike which was due to take place today (Thursday 24th August) and tomorrow. The planned industrial action was called off after a deal was brokered with the government at the 11th hour.
SEF immigration inspectors had called the action for today and tomorrow that had threatened to cause chaos at the country’s airport. Concessions made late last night around the negotiating table saw unions opt to call off the planned action.
One of the biggest grievances of SEF inspectors was a shortage of human resources, which the government said will be dealt with by hiring at least 100 new workers.
