BARCELONA AIRPORT security staff have announced they will strike indefinitely over issues with working conditions.
Protests are scheduled to begin this Friday (August 4) demanding better working conditions and more staff.
The Catalan Government requires a 90 per cent minimum service obligation in order to guarantee “fundamental rights, such as the right to travel.”
Eulen workers announced partial strikes from 5.30 to 6.30am, 10.30 to 11.30 am, 4.30 to 5.30 pm and 6.30 to 7.30 pm on Fridays, Sundays and Mondays.
However due to a breakdown in talks workers have threatened to carry the strikes out every day starting mid-August, causing concerns as millions of tourists are expected to go through Barcelona’s airport.
Eulen said that they had been willing to negotiate on numerous occasions, but when meetings were set up the strike committee either “did not show, or when they did, they showed no intention of negotiating.”
