LISBON (Reuters) – Portugal’s government said on Wednesday it would guarantee fuel to critical sectors like hospitals and airports if another strike threatened by tanker drivers goes ahead next week.
The strike may still be averted through talks, but if it occurs it would be the second by fuel-tanker drivers this year and come at the height of Portugal’s summer tourist season.

“We are talking about a particularly sensitive time of the year,” Labor and Social Security Minister Jose Antonio Vieira da Silva told journalists.
The minister said 100 percent supplies would be ensured to ports, hospitals, airports, military bases, fire stations, the civil protection agency and some 320 public petrol stations.
