The Confederação Geral dos Trabalhadores Portugueses (CGTP) and União Geral de Trabalhadores (UGT) labor unions have called for public sector workers to hold a nationwide general strike on Thursday, February 14, and on Friday, February 15, to demand higher wages. Associated protests will reportedly be held on Thursday in front of the Ministry of Finance building in Lisbon. The work stoppage is expected to impact health, education, and government services and result in public transportation disruptions.
Individuals in Portugal are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, prepare for business and transportation disruptions, and budget extra time to reach their destinations.
