Renfe faces today, October 5th, to a new day of work stoppages due to the machinists’ strike called by the Union of Train Drivers and Railway Helpers (SEMAF), which represents 85% of the personnel belonging to the group of drivers. For this reason, the railway operator has published several decrees of minimum services in order to guarantee its clients a certain normality, especially on certain dates that are very marked due to its proximity to the Hispanic Day bridge, on October 12, the day on which the strike will end at first.
