Doctors maintain two-day strike scheduled for coming week

Portugal’s striking doctors are maintaining the two-day stoppage scheduled for next week (Tuesday October 17 and Wednesday October18) in spite of the new proposal to try and break the deadlock presented by the government last week. Syndicates have stressed they need to ‘study the proposal’ ahead of the next round of negotiations, scheduled for Thursday (October 19), hence the reason for maintaining strike action previously announced.
