TRADE unions in Spain are threatening strikes across the country’s transport network during the peak Semana Santa (Easter) week.
Airport ground handlers, pilots and train drivers could all take action that could cause travel chaos for passengers.
The UGT and USO unions have called an airport ground handlers strike across airport-manager Aena’s entire network on April 21 and 24 after mediation talks failed. The unions represent around 60,000 airport workers including baggage handlers.
The ATES union, representing security workers, has also called an open-ended strike at Madrid’s Barajas airport starting on April 12.
Meanwhile the Spanish pilot union Sepla has called a strike of Air Nostrum pilots on April 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24.
And Semaf, the largest train driver union, has called a 24-hour strike on the Renfe network for April 23, which coincides with the return date for many Spanish Semana Santa passengers.
