Unions have announced strike dates at 16 airports in Spain during January and February.

New strike call in the Spanish aeronautical sector. This Wednesday, January 18, air traffic controllers members of the Usca (Air Traffic Controllers Union) and CC OO voted in favor of the strike, as reported theprovinces.es.

Vueling cabin crew from Stavla are already taking action, while Air Nostrum maintenance technicians also called for a strike last week, which will begin on Monday the 23rd.

This last strike will affect the personnel who work in the privatized control towers of 16 national airports. The strike will take place for 24 hours, every Monday, on January 30, February 6, 13, 20 and 27.

The airport control towers affected will be those of A Coruña, Alicante-ElcheCastellón, Cuatro Vientos, El Hierro, Fuerteventura, Ibiza, Jerez, Lanzarote, La Palma, Lleida, Murciasabadel, SevilleValencia and Vigo.

As both unions have announced in a statement, a decision has been made due to the “failure of negotiations”, with 162 air traffic control workers implicated in the action. They stated that negotiations with the business association APCTA had broken down.

APCTA includes the private providers of the liberalized market Saerco, which manages the towers in Castellón, and FerroNATS, which manages the peanuts and control towers in Alicante.

Both unions have criticized Saerco’s attitude. It has been the: “opposite of reaching any type of agreement, which has made it difficult from the outset the proposals that the workers’ representatives have presented in the different negotiating meetings,” they explained. With FerroNATS, however, ‘significant commonalities’ have been achieved.

air traffic controllers The unions have tried to reach an agreement and, as they explain in the statement, they have ceded unspecified “important issues.” “The system cannot function based on the effort of a fatigued workforce and with constant cuts in rights consolidated in the past,” they denounced.

After the negotiations failed, the controllers voted for a strike to try to resume negotiations.

They pointed out that it was done in an effort: “to be able to really advance in the achievement of a new agreement, more necessary at this time of recovery of air traffic, and more so when the image of the country’s main economic activity would be affected by the level of of delays at their airports.
