Short-term relief as fuel strike suspended until Monday

Short-term relief as fuel strike suspended until MondayThe National Union of Hazardous Materials Drivers (SNMMP) announced this Friday lunchtime, 16th of August, that it is willing to suspend the strike in order to pave way for the Government to convene a meeting between ANTRAM (National Association of Road Goods Carriers) and a mediator of the Directorate-General for Employment and Labor Relations (DGERT).

In a statement, the union says this possible suspension will last until Sunday, by which point an agreement will hopefully have been reached for the workers.

This statement went on to reveal that “In view of the appointment today of a mediator from the DGERT (Directorate-General for Employment and Labor Relations) to open negotiations with ANTRAM”, the Union “felt that the necessary conditions were set for all parties to sit down at a table and resolve the issue.”

“We want to make it clear to the whole country and the political parties that we have always been acting in good faith in this process. We announce the temporary suspension of the strike from the beginning of the meeting to be convened by the Government”, the Union revealed.

Furthermore, this news comes as fuel stocks across the country are beginning to increase, to the point where the Emergency Network of Fuel Stations (REPA) put in place by the Government has been reduced due to lack of necessity.

I Think mj1 and Darcy should leave Portugal if they are so dissatisfied with things and leave us to enjoy this lovely country and the people who live here.


Ex-Pat, I believe you are directing your ire at the wrong person here. If you read and digest the comment stream in detail, Darcy is not being anti Portuguese. Darcy’s comment is aimed directly at Dierdre, a well known and regular critic of most things Portuguese on these pages. We are all entitled to our opinions on these pages, but let us get our facts right please before we (incorrectly) attack others!

(Unless I am mistaken, mj1 was being facetious and turning Darcy’s well intentioned comment against him/her and therefore indeed being anti Portuguese. mj1 knows jolly well that he/she does not agree with the intended sentiment of Darcy’s comment at all)

I Wonder who put the two negatives on my last comment? No prizes for guessing correctly!

Quoting Dierdre:
Behind all this is yet another example of why no country has, either before or since, copied Portugal's 1974 pretend Revolution by allowing their elite camel owners to organise that countries Revolution. These fuel drivers have not even a goat amongst them yet a variety of camel owner groups have been wheeled forward from obscurity by all the censored national TV news stations to complain - from landowners wanting to get crops to market to tourism magnates annoyed that tourist were being affected. Algeria and Sudan - learn from this!

What a pity, this person continually has the need to use degrading comments about her host country.
You are aware that you can leave at any time ....... Please do ............
