Strikes come to Barajas

Renfe, El Prat and now, Barajas. The strikes in the transport extend to the main airport of the country. The workers of the fuel company Spanish Intoplane Services (SIS), controlled by Cepsa, today approved partial stoppages indefinitely as of next Thursday at the Madrid airport, as announced by the USO union.

The workers have been against to accept the proposal of salary increase of the company of 1,3%. Its proposed increase is 2.1%, the union has reported.

The stoppages, to which UGT has joined, will begin this Thursday between three and five in the morning. The protests, which will be two hours per shift on Thursdays and Saturdays of each week indefinitely, will take place between ten and twelve noon, four and six in the afternoon and three and five in the morning . ISIS provides services to airlines such as Iberia, British Airways, Vueling and Ryanair.

The Ministry of Industry has set some minimum services of 100% for flights with the islands, Ceuta and Melilla; 50% for journeys of more than 500 kilometers or longer than five hours of flight; and 25% for journeys of less than 500 kilometers or a duration of less than five hours.

The protests in Barajas are in addition to those protested by the workers of Iberia in El Prat. They will be the next days 27 and 28 of this month to protest the overload of work and the lack of hiring to deal with the activity in the summer season.

There are also calls for stops in Renfe for the next few days. The union CGT announced yesterday the call for four days of strike (July 31, August 14, August 30 and September 1), from 12:00 to 16:00 and from 20:00 to 24:00, in full operation departure and arrival of the holidays. Nor is it ruled out that CC OO make more mobilizations after the one convened yesterday.
