Airport security guards set to begin strike at Malaga-Costa del Sol airport on Thursday, August 12.
No agreement has been reached so security guards who work at the Malaga-Costa del Sol airport will go on strike this Thursday, August 12. The strike has been called over the “non-compliance with the collective agreement and the specifications”. All security services at the airport will be affected by the strike and this includes car parks, scanners and other areas too.
A meeting was held on Monday, August 9 between the parties but sadly no agreement was reached. Due to the fact that the meeting ended without an agreement the strike is set to go ahead according to the UGT union in the province of Malaga.
“The professionalism of the workers is more than demonstrated and their link with the airport is also demonstrated, they regret the damage they may cause but the situation is unsustainable,” said the Union. The management of the security service has been blamed for “owing significant amounts to workers every month”.
The Union regret that the planned strike will be needed but have said that when they plan any type of negotiation meeting, “they show no interest in resolving the situation”.
Both the UGT and CCOO Malaga had hoped that “some kind of mediation to resolve the situation” would have been put in place by the Malaga-Costa del Sol airport management and Aena.
As reported La Opinion de Malaga, “At the end of last July, this strike was announced in a service that employs some 300 people contracted by the concessionary company. It will take place on Thursday and Friday from 10.00 to 12.00 hours.”
