SPANISH air traffic controllers have announced another four days of partial strikes for this month.The strikes are called for July 11-12 and 25-26 due to what the controllers claim is a lack of will on Enaire’s part to reach an agreement regarding punishment 61 controllers from Barcelona received for closing air space in 2010.The strikes will take place from 10am to 1pm on July 11 and 25 and from 5pm to 8pm on July 12 and 26.The controllers are also calling for the Spanish air management company to reinstate a controller from Santiago de Compostela who was dismissed after the event almost five years ago.This month’s strikes follow others held on June 8, 10, 12 and 14 which had very little impact on flight activity according to the authorities as the government demanded a minimum service of 70 per cent.USCA union representatives have said that they are open to negotiations but claim there is little wish to do so on the part of the management company, meaning reaching an agreement has so far been impossible.
