However, union CGT has called for strike action on the eve of the All Saints public holiday (November 1).

The CGT has called for strike action ‘in defence of the public railway and in order to maintain a working week of 37.5 hours per week’.

Renfe plans to run 78 per cent of its long-distance trains and 65 per cent of their medium-distance trains which is in accordance to minimum service regulations set up to protect commuters.

Renfe’s previous strike on July 27 of this year saw the cancellation of 161 services, causing widespread travel chaos for passengers.
