Workers at the Autoeuropa car assembly plant just south of Lisbon are staging a strike against having to work an extra day.

The decision to stage the first strike in the Volkswagen manufacturing venue came after employees were asked to work on Saturdays to build a new model.

Autoeuropa had offered workers a salary increase of 16 percent along with a bonus of 175 euros a month and an additional day of leave per month, but this was refused by three-quarters of workers who back a decision to strike instead.
