Summary

In May 2004 the Portuguese NCP received a request for a review from a trade union alleging a multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines resulting from a factory closure in Portugal.

After an initial assessment the NCP concluded that the Guidelines had not been breached and subsequently concluded the specific instance with the agreement of the parties involved.
