The Lisbon Metro workers had mandated, on 22 April, after a plenary session, the trade unions to start fighting if the company's Board of Directors did not accept the counterproposal related to wage negotiations.
At stake are wage and career enhancement, as well as the immediate filling of the operational framework and career progression.
In a statement, the Transport and Communications Trade Union Federation (FECTRANS) said that the strike on 25 May would take place from 5am to 9.30am, for most workers and from 9.30am to 12.30pm for the administrative and technical sector.
The union also said that the workers demand the right to transport, the strict fulfilment of all clauses of the Company Agreement (CA), as well as the extension of the validity of the CA.
According to FECTRANS, until the beginning of the day's struggle "there will be total availability, if wills come together, so that the best solutions can be found for the workers and for the company".
