The main trade union representing air transport workers in Portugal have announced a three-day-strike from 1 July, in protest at what it said are increasingly precarious
employment conditions for workers in ground handling services at the country’s airports, and accused the government of doing nothing to combat the problem.

SITAVA hereby announces that, in view of the Government’s passivity, the workers are left with no other alternative than to fight for their jobs, for their companies, for their survival,” the union’s president, Fernando Henriques, said at a news conference in Lisbon.
“So we have decided to hand in formal notice of a strike in all handling companies for the 1, 2 and 3 of July of 2016.”
