SNPVAC will advance with prior notice of a strike at work at TAP for seven days, between January 25 and 31.

"I appeal, from now on, for everyone's adherence so that, once again, we can give a full note to the company https://www.flytap.com/pt-pt/ of our union around the dissatisfaction regarding the matters addressed and deliberated at the GA on November 3, which constitute our legitimate claims", indicates the same statement.
The SNPVAC general meeting rejected TAP's proposal on December 29, maintaining its intention to hold a five-day strike until January 31, a union source told Lusa at the time.
It should be recalled that this union carried out a strike by TAP crew members on the 8th and 9th of December, which led the airline to cancel 360 flights and had an estimated total impact of eight million euros.
