CCOO calls for strike at airports for Christmas


Madrid (EFE) it.

In a statement, the CCOO explained that the call comes after months of conversations with the companies of the Aena group -Aena, Enaire and the international airport of the region of Murcia- and the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and the Urban Agenda to recover this payment, which was billed to it annually until the pandemic broke out.

In this sense, it demands its recovery for the group’s more than 10,000 workers, in a context marked by the resumption of air traffic, which has already returned to the levels of 2019, a record year before the pandemic.

For this reason, they have called for a strike for December 22, 23, 30 and 31, as well as for January 6 and 8, under penalty of continuing the demonstrations during the first quarter of 2023 and next Easter if your demand does not is not met.

The UGT, however, disassociated itself from the appeal, considering that it “does not make sense”, since the ministry promised to assume “all the efforts and steps” to settle this compensation, which is paid at the end of January.

“Today, we have neither refused nor said that there are particular difficulties. It lacks practical sense to call for a strike in the middle of Christmas for something that is undeniable, and for the payment of which there is a month and a half left,” castigates the UGT in a press release.

Pilots call for strike at Air Nostrum

On the other hand, this Monday the call for a strike by the Sepla pilots’ union at Air Nostrum to demand that the CPI update their salaries in the negotiation of the new collective agreement was also known.

The protest for all of its bases and workplaces is motivated by the company’s “blocking” of negotiations by maintaining an “irremovable” position on fundamental aspects of working conditions and wage demands.

Thus, the pilots are called to strike on December 22, 23, 26, 27, 29 and 30, and on January 2 and 3, with 24-hour strikes.
