Strike action by Portugal’s prison guards means many inmates will not be able to see visitors over the weekends for the next six weeks.

Prison guards continue strike action

The guards are protesting against new work rules that the government is looking to implement, which among other changes will reduce overtime as well as the number of guards working night shifts.

 

The Portuguese Association for Support to Inmates has said the strikes disrespect the elementary rights of inmates and has written a complaint to the Ministry of Justice.
