Angry Bar Owners Strike

Just when we thought all the strikes over easter were finished.

Bars fix lockout date, 18th April
STAFF REPORTER
OWNERS of bars, restaurants and cafeterias on Majorca will be shutting their doors at 6pm on 18th April and joining a demonstration against the economic damage that has been done to the food and drink industry by the total smoking ban introduced at the start of the year, the Balearic Business Federation (CAEB) confirmed yesterday.

The industrial lockout, of which warning has already been given by both the Business Federation and the hostelry sector of the Majorcan small to medium-sized businesses association (PIMEM), will be timed to coincide with the demonstration. Hence businesses will be closed for several hours.

Hmmm is that not shooting oneself in the foot somewhat?

I'll bet there are no ex-pat owned/run bars closed in protest. Even so closing at 6pm for "several hours" on a Monday night, out of season?, they will lose a fortune, not. I am sure they will be back open by 8pm.

Adios

Dave

Barmy if you ask me, stopping smoking in bars & restaurents was the best move made in certain countries for the past 50 years.
Now watch this thread take off.

Not sure I wanted to start a new thread on the smoking ban again, just wanted to warn people of the possible strike, I think we decided it was up to the individual what they did, and as its law now its immaterial anyway. As stated its seems strange to close your bar because because you are losing trade Sure most wont

For us that like to have a tipple, the only thing that we can do if the bars close for a night. Is counter strike for the same duration.

Not so much a strike as a protest, if the bars are losing money due to the smoking ban, it's just because people are giving up smoking and presumably the bar culture that is Mallorca. Next thing we know they'll be putting up speed cameras in Pollenca and Alcudia......................oh
