Lusa strike

Employees of the national news agency Lusa have announced a four-day strike to be held from October 18 until 21. Workers agreed to carry out the strike in protest against anticipated cuts in their 2013 contracts and those expected in next year’s state budget. Expected measures will “harm the public service provided by the agency and may cause reporters to lose their jobs,” the agency’s workers said in a statement.
