Renfe has canceled 46 trains of those initially scheduled for this Wednesday, April 17, due to the strike called in Adif by CC.OO. and the Circulation Syndicate for that day, which coincides with the 'exit operation' of Holy Week.
Of the total of trains that are canceled for that day, 19 are AVE and Long Distance trains, and the remaining 27, of Average Distance (regional), as reported by the operator. It is possible to check the canceled trains in this page.
Suspended circulations represent around 5% of those routinely scheduled by Renfe for that day, one of the busiest travelers of the year. The minimum services decreed before these calls guarantee 95% of the services, according to the railway company.
In particular, CC.OO. has called on the workers of Adif to support a day of strike on Wednesday in protest at the delay that accumulates the final approval of the new collective agreement of the company, agreed between the management of the company owner and manager of the rail network and the unions at the end of last year.
In parallel, the Circulation Syndicate has also called the 'railway controllers' to support a strike on the same day, also to denounce that "the Adif and Adif Alta Velocidad workers have been without a collective agreement since January 1" because "the Ministries of Development and Finance have not authorized the pre-agreement that was signed on December 27, 2018. "
"This situation, which in itself generates a justified insecurity about the working conditions of any employee, also means that the negotiations of important issues contemplated in the agreement have been paralyzed, such as the reduction of working hours and mobility," says training.
