Spain airport strike 'could be off'

Wed 16th Mar 2011

An accord of sorts has been reached between AENA and the unions representing the Spanish airport workers. AENA, the Spanish Airports Authority, announced over Twitter this morning, that the resulting agreement would effectively bring the threat of 22 days of strike action to an end.

22 strike days between April and August were originally announced last week, and had been timed to cause maximum disruption over the busy Easter and Summer periods.

The Unions members induvidually need to decide upon the proposed terms of the agreement before it can be formalised.

AENA maintains that it will protect the labour rights of all employees, even in the event of partial privatisation, and both parties have given an undertaking to talk and collaborate to resolve the conflict.

Curent employee levels will be maintained, and any employees on a temporary contract will be offered a permenant contract. If the agreement is approved, it will stand until 2018.

The intervention of a number of government ministers during the 17 hour meeting was also rumoured to have had a crucial effect on the outcome.

Union leaders confirmed that an agreement in principal has been reached, and that a formal annoucement of the strike dates being called off is just one small step away.
