Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Strike at Infrastructures of Portugal expected to delay trains




Lisbon, March 12 (Lusa) - Railway infrastructure workers at Infraestruturas de Portugal are on strike on Monday demanding immediate wage rises of around 4%, which is expected to cause "serious" train delays and cancellations, with just 25% of trains running between Lisbon and Porto, union officials said.
The Portuguese Arbitration Court set minimum services that will have to be provided during Monday’s strike saying that 25% of the Lisbon and Porto urban services, including teh traingf on the 25th April bridge to Lisbon, and the same proportion of long-distance trains would have to run.
José Manuel Oliveira, coordinator of Fectrans - Federation of Transport and Communications Trade Unions, told Lusa that the strike was called because workers at Infraestruturas de Portugal (IP) have had no wage rises since 2009, and believe they can not wait for the end of the negotiation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (ACT).
"At the last negotiating meeting on Wednesday, the board referred wage increases to the end of the bargaining process, but workers need an increase now, albeit a minimal increase, that can be revised at the end of the ACT negotiation," Oliveira said.
The unions demand an immediate increaseof around 4%, providing each worker with a minimum additional €40 euros per month.
For customers who have tickets purchased to travel on Alfa Pendular, Intercity and Regional services that are cancelled due to the strike, CP has said it will allow the reimbursement of the total amount or accept the ticket for use on another day or another train.
The Colective Bargaining Agreement under negotiation will be in force in the companies of the IP group (IP-Infraestruturas de Portugal, IP-Telecom, IP-Engenharia and IP-Património).
IP is the public company that resulted from the merger of Rede Ferroviária Nacional - REFER and EP - Estradas de Portugal.
