CGTP union says privatisations harmed workers, state

 

Arménio Carlos said during a meeting organised by the federation in Lisbon that workers in companies involved in privatisations had lost rights and working conditions.

 

He also said privatisations had accentuated inequality between the interior of the country and the coast, adding that there had been a reduction of essential services in the country's inland areas.

 

Carlos called for an improvement in public services and for the state to invest in this area.

 

The hundreds of activists that took part in today's meeting had as a basis the discussion of a document produced by the CGTP which calls for an improvement in services and the recovery of the public sector of telecommunications and post, transport, energy, water and sanitation.
