AIRPORT unions enter the final week of talks with the government to avoid striking across Spain.

Talks have reportedly made “significant progress,” with the UGT, CCOO and USO unions believing the chances of reaching an agreement this week are “looking good.”

Airport manager Aena, air navigation manager Enaire and airport workers have already reached a deal on their working hours and salary. All that remains now is for the government and the unions to agree on increasing staff numbers and percentage increases in salaries.

The Ministry for Development forwarded plans to employ an extra 600 staff, and the tax authority is considering increases in pay.

If negotiations prove unsuccessful, the unions would call for strikes to start in October.
