Warning Issued for Strikes in Spain this Easter Holiday

by Traveleads | April 17, 2019 | Latest News On The Ground

British travellers to Spain face a series of airport and airline strikes covering the Easter Holiday period.  The Unión Sindical Obrera (USO) and Unión General de Trabajadores are preparing to host strikes which would see 60,000 ground handling airport staff staging a series of walk outs.

The news follows a dispute between the unions and company Aseata over the pay and conditions for staff, including specific clauses regarding workers who are transferred from one company to another.

The walk outs are currently planned for Sunday 21st April (Easter Sunday) and Wednesday 24th April.

If you are flying to and from Spain in the mentioned dates, you should check with your flight operator before travelling.

If the planned action goes ahead it is likely to cause long queues, delays and possibly cancellations.
