National AVE Train disruption

Fri 16th Apr 2010

A strike of ‘head of train' porters on the AVE high speed trains is due to begin on Sunday, and will result in a series of daily stoppages.

The CGT union reports how their members will continue the action until June 30th, which will result in work stopping for four hours during the week except Saturdays, and for eight hours on Fridays and Sundays. The union says it has taken the decision for action after the latest meeting with RENFE managers broke down. The Union's concern is that that RENFE is intending to remove the ‘head of train' porters from their trains.

This is the second time industrial action has been faced by RENFE Spanish railways in a month, after 6,200 passengers were inconvenienced by drivers' action before Easter. On that occasion action was taken by the CGT to defend the rights of their Train Driver members.

The Ministry for Development has established a minimum services level at 70%, an amount considered by the union as ‘abusive'.
