Madrid’s Metro workers have started to stage partial strikes today, coinciding with the local festivity of San Isidro and the second will be on the same day as the King’s Cup soccer final, which will be played by Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid at the city’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Friday.

The Metro de Madrid drivers’ union is demanding €16.5 million it calculates its members are owed because management failed to pay them their negotiated salary increases.

Trains will ran at 39 per cent of regular frequency today between 11am and 4pm and will run at 52 per cent on Friday between 7pm and 9pm.

However, labour union sources said that subway lines that run close to the Bernabeu will have more trains.
