The truck drivers‘ strike is over !
Yesterday evening the news of the Portuguese broadcaster RTP said that the 1,200 members of the union SIMM (Sindicato Independente dos Motoristas de Mercadorias) would resume their work.
But not the strike of the dangerous goods transporters !
In the previous week, under threat of the strike in many places already hamster purchases had provided for sold out gas stations. The official start of the strike was scheduled for Monday 12 August – with an indefinite end.
The map on the website janaodaparaabastecer.vost.pt shows the current status of the local petrol stations. An emergency supply should guarantee each passenger car 15 – 25 litres of fuel.
