Strike threat diminishes

By Doug Newhouse |

State-owned Spanish airports operator Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (AENA) and its unions have announced today that ‘a preliminary agreement’ has been reached between both parties, which if ratified by union voting, will end the threatened 19-22 days of strike action by airport workers this summer.

In a formal statement this morning, AENA said that the framework for an agreement was reached after 20 hours of talks and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero welcomed the agreement, which should now see Spanish airports working normally through the important summer months.

AENA’s unions were threatening strike action related fears on jobs and working conditions related to the government’s plan to sell off 49% stakes in the country’s airports currently controlled by AENA.
