Bus strike at the end of July

Horários do Funchal will strike at the end of July.

The Journal reports that one of the major bus companies in Madeira, Horários do Funchal, will go on strike for 24 hours on 28, 29 and 30 July 2019.
The National Union of Motorist Workers (SNM), which represents the workers of this company, said that “there is widespread discontent among drivers, particularly regarding the lack of wage updates for the current year”.  Therefore, SNM have announced in advance that they will strike in about a month, in view of the minimum legal deadlines, “considering that there is still negotiating space between the parties and that this space should be empowered to the benefit of those who work.”
The information sent by this union to JM also says that the SNM will hold a meeting of workers on June 26 to ensure that there is support for the action if no improved offer had been forthcoming.
