We also invite you to watch the following messages referring to the 1st of May:

As long as this country does not make a strong leap in terms of economic development, it is not possible to have more resources for the NHS, for education, for justice, for the essential segments of our society. (…) It is the companies that will push the country, in terms of development, in terms of development!

Arménio SantosPresidente Honorário dos TSD

We need to attract young people to the union movement! (…) If you think our movement needs change, come and help us change it! This is a challenge that I have been launching for a long time.

Lucinda DâmasoPresidente da Mesa do Congresso Nacional TSD

The current government uses social consultation as minimum services, which can only be understood in a survival strategy. (…) Structural reforms were stopped in this country in October 2015, this is a fact! (…) It has already been noticed that with this government, with the socialist party at the head of the government, the strategy is for navigation in sight, trying to survive.

Pedro RoqueSecretário-Geral dos TSD

Workers cannot be punished for going to a union! (…) The Algarve has no employability for technical staff. (…) It is necessary to reverse this situation.
