100% strike in the refuse collection to keep the "night allowance"

Portugal Portugal
For three consecutive days a strike of refuse collectors caused chaos in the city of Oporto. The strike was caused by the decision of the Oporto Mayor to suspend the "night allowance" for more than 600 workers. This means a reduction of €115 in a €500 average salary and will be deducted this month. The first day of the strike had 100% support as it was organised by SINTAP (UGT) and STAL (CGTP) Unions. The workers don't accept the suspension of this allowance, which has been paid since the seventies. SINTAP has applied to the Oporto Administrative Court of Justice to prevent the allowance being cut.
