Series of airport strikes set to begin February 11th, ending August 31st in Spain, according to unions
The two main unions at Spanish airport operator AENA called 27 strike days between February and August in protest at the partial privatization of the firm. The first strike is scheduled for 11 February, the day the state will list a minority stake on the world's largest airport operator, the secretary general of one of the two unions, USO-AENA, said.
The two unions that called the industrial action, CCOO and USO, represent 70 per cent of the roughly 9,000 workers at AENA's 46 airports and two heliports in Spain.
They also called for 22 full-day strikes, including seven in July and five in August during the peak summer travel season.
The last strike will be on 31 August.
