No August strike for Spanish Air Traffic Control
August 13th, 2010 by elisa

Spanish Air Traffic Control workers have agreed not to strike on the originally suggested date of 16th August. Unions say it is unlikely there will be a strike in August which will come as a relief to make UK holidaymakers who are set to travel to the favoured holiday country.

This does not mean that there won’t be a strike at all, but both sides are willing to talk in an attempt to avert the action.

Spanish Air Traffic Control workers voted in favour of strike action over a long-standing dispute with the government over pay cuts and increased hours.

Ryanair suggested that the military must be brought in to help if any strike action does take place. The Spanish tourism industry has criticised the possible action because of the major loss in earnings the industry will suffer as a whole.

 The Spanish government estimate that they will be able to run 50% of flights if the strike goes ahead. View my previous blog here.
