Spanish airport strikes called off

TRADE unions have called off 27 days of strikes that had been announced for airport workers, as an agreement has been reached.

Comisiones Obreras union representatives declared that the strikes had been cancelled as Aena airport management company had given guarantees that working conditions and jobs would not be affected by plans to partially privatise a number of airports.

Yet protests are still planned for tomorrow (February 11) against the partial privatisation of Aena airports, in Madrid and at airports across the country.

The two main unions for airport workers had announced 27 days of strikes between February and August this year as they feared that working conditions and safety would be affected by the entry of private capital into the company.
