Spain airport staff to use union bargaining?

Workers in Spanish airports are expected to go on strike.

09 August 2011

Union bargaining could be used by officials in Spain in an effort to prevent industrial action.

Three unions in the country - CCOO, UGT and USO - have called demonstrations on August 18th and 26th.

This means a number of airports in areas such as Malaga, Alicante and the Canary Islands will face disruptions.

Unless strike negotiations can find a resolution between the parties, holidaymakers may be left anxiously waiting to see if their break will go off smoothly.

According to the Daily Mail a spokesperson for CCOO said: "The strikes have been called because handling companies are repeatedly ignoring agreements they made with unions."

The representative added the decision of Barcelona Airport to lay off four workers also played a part in the choice of action.

German air traffic controllers are considering taking to the picket line as a pay dispute lingers on.
