The USO union expands to 92 the flights canceled due to the crew strike at Iberia Express

92 flights canceled due to the cabin crew strike at Iberia Express between August 28 and September 6, reports the union calling the strikes, USO. The union organization has published the list of flights canceled by the airline, up to a total of 98, which it considers to be a sign of the "wide support of Iberia Express crew members for the strike call", motivated by the negotiation of the collective agreement , in which salaries are of great importance.

The union announced last week the strike call, of ten days in the final stretch of the summer period, which coincides with the journeys of many vacationers.

USO has reported this Friday that the strikes have caused the company to "previously cancel 92 flights that it had scheduled in the ten days of strike and that were outside the minimum services decreed by the Government."

For now, Iberia Express website that accounts for the flights affected by the minimum services of the strike and that offers options to its clients in the event of possible alterations in these, only collects flight cancellations until August 30, as verified by elDiario.es.

Sources from the USO union assure this medium that the rest of the cancellation list flights offered between August 31 and September 6 have also been cancelled, according to the information available to the organization.

Among the canceled flights are the connections from Madrid with Palma de Mallorca, Gran Canaria, Santiago de Compostela, Seville, Malaga and Tenerife North. "Around 17,000 passengers will be affected by these flights canceled by the company to avoid the embarrassment of queues at Iberia counters," they say in USO.

USO affirms that the negotiation of the II Collective Agreement of the cabin crew of the airline is blocked, due to "a null interest in improving the working conditions of the group, opposing any union proposal and offering alternatives far from reality".

The union recalls that it demands an annual salary review according to the CPI during the term of the agreement to adjust salaries to the increase in prices, since the crew members have had their salaries frozen for 7 years“,

“With these cancellations, Iberia Express does not risk the planes not leaving because the crews second the strike call. This decision makes it clear that the airline is aware of the discomfort of its staff but, however, does not come with proposals to the meetings that have been held throughout this week and in which USO has shown its willingness to call off the strike . We need proposals on the table that stop making our working conditions more precarious and they do not arrive”, denounces Estefanía Díaz, USO delegate at Iberia Express.

At Iberia Express they asked USO to “reconsider”, calling off the strike, when the union announced the stoppages. The airline asked the USO to "adhere to the agreement reached with the CCOO to advance improvements in working and salary conditions and continue with the negotiation of the II Collective Agreement for cabin crew (TCP)", the Europa Press agency has collected.

The USO union has published the following list of canceled flights for the ten days of strikes. At the moment, Iberia Express only informs on your website of cancellations until August 30.
