Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Train strike affects all services from noon




Lisbon, 12 June (Lusa) - Portuguese national train company CP is expecting train delays between now and Wednesday, in all services, except for urban trains in Porto, due to a 24-hour strike called by several trade union organisations and due to begin at noon on Tuesday.
Although the Tribunal of the Economic and Social Council has decreed minimum services, CP expects, "serious impacts on the mobility of users of services," due to the strike that starts at noon on Tuesday and is due to end at noon on Wednesday.
The railway workers union SFRCI, one of the seven that signed the strike notice, said it was unhappy with the definitions of minimum strike services, and said it expected that, "there will be a lot of traffic [...], but there will be no charges."
The shutdown - the second this month - is related to the "single agent issue," and this time covers workers between Coimbra in central Portugal and Vila Real de Santo António in the Algarve region.
The same model will be used for the strike of 23 and 24 June, which was announced meanwhile, but for workers north of Coimbra.
The union expects all workers who are not assigned to minimum services to join the strike and that the "ticket office will be completely closed," meaning that customers will travel without paying for their journey."In essence, there will be trains, but there will be no charge," teh president of the union, Luís Bravo, told Lusa.
"In terms of circulation there will be enough, as the arbitral tribunal decreed maximum services in its decision, which is incomprehensible and reminiscent of the times before April 25 [the Portuguese revolution in 1974], where it was not possible to strike, because as the minimum services have been distributed, it is almost equivalent to the workers being prevented from striking," he argued.
On Monday, the Minister of Planning and Infrastructure, Pedro Marques, lamented "the impacts" of a "repeated strike" by CP, but pointed out that the Government will not give in to the demands of the workers.
"The strike is a completely legitimate right of the workers, but what is at stake here is the amendment of a regulation that the Government has not changed and is not considering changing," Marques said.
