Text size Aa Aa

There was a quiet scene at Porto’s train station as a three-day strike began in Portugal on Friday, causing disruption to 80 per cent of national rail services over Christmas.

Only a minimal amount of trains are running over Christmas, in keeping with public transport laws.

The Train Engineers’ Union is protesting disciplinary proceedings resulting from previous strikes.

The strike is from December 23-25, with another one set for January 1.
