THE Spanish Union of Train Workers (Semaf) has called off the Renfe train strikes which had started today at 12am after being able to reach an agreement with the company’s management.

Sources from the Union told Spanish press agency EFE that the agreement, which has been reached at around 2am, covers a new plan for human resources which is expected to replace personnel through an organised dismissal plan and at the same time hire new members of staff.

The management board has also promised other employment, social and economic measures, which has pushed the union to call off today’s strikes, as well as those announced for November 14 and 15.
