THE Spanish Air Traffic Controllers trade union USCA has announced partial strikes that have been scheduled for June 8, 10, 12 and 14.
The strikes have been organised to protest against the decision of the company in charge of Spanish air traffic Enaire to sanction 61 air traffic controllers who did not attend their workplace or left on December 3 and 4 due to strikes. These 61 members of staff were sanctioned with a one-month suspension from work and wages.
Strikes will be carried out in periods of two hours during the mornings and afternoons, according to the statement released by the trade union.
USCA agreed to call strikes during its national meeting held on Tuesday, with 81 per cent of all members supporting the decision.
The trade union had considered calling strikes in March but they were postponed repeatedly due to the Germanwings crash, the Easter holidays and the regional and municipal Spanish elections.
