A STRIKE has been called by passport control workers at Terminal A of Palma Airport which is due to start at midnight on the August 24.
The reason for the strike is allegedly due to “irregularities” that they believe they suffer at work. The Commissions (CCOO) said in a press release that the strike was approved by workers at an assembly held at the headquarters of CCOO last Thursday. They have alleged that payrolls are “incomprehensible” and that “systematic errors” are made in salaries, “shift bosses are not recognised and if they get sick they are deprived of the benefits”.
They also claim that the position of coordinator has been handed to five different people in the space of the year which they believe has caused confusion and administrative difficulties. The list of complaints is extensive including lack of training, not receiving contracts, false job offers and reduced pay.
The strike is proposed to last until some of their demands are met and their complaints are dealt with. If the strike does go ahead it is advised to leave plenty of time to get through the airport.
