In Portugal, where the CGTP labor group called the strike to protest measures include wage and pension cuts, state-owned airline TAP SGPS SA cancelled flights. Lisbon's metro service was shut and state-owned train operator CP-Comboios de Portugal said most trains won't run. Italian transportation and shipping will be disrupted throughout the day due to staggered, four-hour walkouts.
