Unhappy Airport strikes Called Off - 18.8 / 26.8.11

Spanish Airport Strikes due to take place this August - Vibe FM, Spain -
Spanish Airport Strikes due to take place this August |

The reported airport strike action this August is due to effect all Ground staff from handling companies at Spanish airports as they have announced a strike on the day that the Pope should arrive in Madrid for the World Youth Day. The strike action is set to disrupt all flights and could effect the entire country.

Unions USO, UGT and CCOO have said that they will carry out 24 hour stoppages on the 18th and 26th of August. They say that all handling companies will be affected, including the movement of suitcases, check in staff, disabled assistance, and those who operate the finger air-bridges to the planes, as well as cargo and postal services.

Union bosses are meeting tomorrow Tuesday with Aceata, the patronal of the handling sector, to try and reach an agreement on minimum services.

It’s estimated that the most affected airports will be Barajas, El Prat, Palma, Málaga, Las Palmas and Tenerife.

Think you will find this action has now been called off - the same as the German controllers.

You are so right Smiddy. Half the time I dont think they intend to strike anyway, they just enjoy the publicity.
