The World Federation of Trade Unions on behalf of its 92 million workers, and FISE, the World Federation of Teachers’ Union welcomes the teachers’ strike in Portugal.
The Portuguese teachers are on a 4-days-strike against the wage freeze which is implemented in Portugal for many years now. The strike started yesterday in Lisbon and will be concluded on Saturday with the strike of teachers in Northern Portugal. The ending of the strike will coincide with the public sector employees strike in Lisbon.
The class oriented trade union movement is in solidarity and supports the struggle of Portuguese teachers and demand the immediate ending of the wage freezing.
