Tank truck drivers in Portugal have ended their strike, which lasted for almost a week. The reason is that trade unions and employers agree on conditions for new negotiations. The talks will resume on Tuesday.

The drivers, who carry out fuel deliveries, put down the work on Monday for an indefinite period. They demand better salaries and working conditions.

Employer organization ANTRAM has previously made it clear that it only wants to talk about this if the strike is interrupted or canceled.

The strike seems to have not yet led to large-scale chaos. According to a specialized website, about a quarter of the gas stations were completely or partially without fuel on Friday afternoon. Where necessary, the army and police assisted in maintaining the country's fuel supply.

According to the Minister of Energy Affairs Joao Pedro Matos, despite the strike 2000 of the total of 3000 gas stations in the country could continue to deliver fuel.
