Workers at airports call 22 days of strikes during tourist seasons
Workers at the state-owned company that runs Spain's airports on Tuesday called 22 days of rolling strikes during peak tourist seasons to protest government plans to sell off half of the firm.
Both sides, however, have said they are still open to negotiations and there is still time to avert the stoppage.
Cesar Revuelta, an AENA union representative, said the strike has been called as workers fear wage reductions and other benefit cuts once private investors take a stake in the firm.
Union papers filed with the Labor Ministry say the workers will strike April 20 and continue into Good Thursday and Easter Sunday. Other strike days are planned for May, June, July and August. But the document also said there is "enough" time to negotiate and avert a strike, Revuelta said.
