The reason behind this strike is again the demand for negotiation of the salary table, as well as the discussion of a hardship subsidy, because of professionals who are assaulted in the job, João Proença added.

Considering that the same demands of the strike notice of one year ago are at stake, the FNAM leader listed the elimination of waiting lists in family doctors.

FNAM's decision joins that of other union structures that also called a national strike for the same day.

The Trade Union Front led by the UGT's State Technical Staff Union called for a national civil service strike.

The Federation of Public Administration Unions, the National Federation of Teachers and the National Federation of Nurses Unions also announced a national strike for 31 January.
