Spanish airport strikes called off

Airport workers in Spain have called off 22 days of strikes which threatened to cause major disruption over the Easter holidays and into the summer.

Union members voted to cancel the strike after receiving guarantees over job security and conditions.

The strikes were called over concerns about the part-privatisation of national airport operator Aena.

The government plans to sell up to 49% of Aena, in a drive to reduce Spain’s budget deficit.

Workers had feared the sale of the company would result in job losses and a deterioration in conditions.

Union leaders said about 70% of their more than 10,000 members voted to call off the industrial action.

Spain is seeing an increase in visitor numbers as tourists avoid distress spots in the Middle East such as Egypt and Tunisia.
