Portugese air traffic strike set to cause flight chaos
PORTUGESE TRAVELS. Strikes by Portuguese air traffic controllers are expected to disrupt international and domestic flights during May 11, 17, 18, 24 and 25. Staff are walking off the job for two hours each shift on those dates to protest pay cuts at their state-owned company NAV Portugal, news agencies report.
The cuts are part of a government austerity drive enacted in return for a $101 billion bailout that debt-heavy Portugal received a year ago. Five unions representing air traffic controllers say the company is self-financing and should not be subject to financial restrictions. Airlines are rescheduling some flights and canceling others.
