Portuguese union fights water privatisation

The Portuguese government, then still under the direction of now Commission President Baroso, took a decision to privatise water services. The Portuguese union STAL is organising a campaign to cancel this decision.
Coming Saturday 4 September thousands of pamphlets will be distributed in cities in the North of Portugal to inform citizens of the plans of the government and municipalities. EPSU has sent a letter to support the action.
