Players threaten strike action

Joaquim Evangelista, president of the Professional Football Players Union (SJPF), met with officials of the Olhanense SAD (limited liability company) and players last Tuesday when the following ultimatum was issued: “If the Olhanense players do not received two months of unpaid wages by Tuesday, February 3, they will move to issue a notice of collective termination of contracts and notice to strike.

The proposed strike would come into force for the game against Sporting ‘B’ in Lisbon, which is scheduled for February 7.”
