Portugal's minister of infrastructure and housing announced that TAP can no longer continue to make advances without having guarantees from Groundforce.
Portugal’s minister of infrastructure and housing, Pedro Nuno Santos, said that TAP has made a great effort to support Groundforce, but a moment came when TAP can no longer continue to make advances without having guarantees.
“We have made a major effort to support Groundforce in recent months,” through the advance of funds for services not yet provided, but a moment has come when TAP can no longer continue to make advances, the minister said on Thursday at a press conference at the Ministry of Infrastructure and Housing.
Pedro Nuno Santos began by leaving a word for the 2,400 Groundforce workers, who are in a situation of great challenge in their lives, with February salaries in arrears.
Pasogal, owned by Alfredo Casimiro, holds 50.1% of Groundforce and TAP 49.9%.
