At the remaining airports and border checkpoints, including maritime ports, the strike was planned for May 22 and 29, and June 5, 12, 19, and 26.

Last Wednesday, the President of the Republic promulgated the government decrees, which were approved by the Council of Ministers on April 6, regarding the replacement of SEF and the transitional regime for its employees.
According to the union, the suspension of the strikes follows the promulgation of these decrees regarding the transition of staff and the creation of the Portuguese Agency for Minorities, Migrations, and Asylum. 
SEF as we know it is expected to become extinct by October, as was previously planned.
