The 24-hour strike scheduled for Wednesday was called by the Itinerant Commercial Review Rail Union (SFRCI) in defense of salary increases.

Luís Bravo, from the SFRCI board, told Lusa that this time the strike involves only the ticket office workers and their respective managers.

"The CP administration and the guardianships remain indifferent to the brutal increase in the cost of living, with an inflation rate of 7.2%, which could exceed 10%, this means that in a salary of 1,000 euros, workers lose 72 euros a month, if it is 10%, it means that workers will lose 100 euros per month", said Luís Bravo.
