September Rail Strike In Spain

Railway workers in Spain are planning a strike from 12.00 am on Friday 29th September until 11.00pm, as they call for more jobs and better pay.  The action will impact travellers on the Costa Del Sol planning to use trains to reach Malaga, Fuengirola, and Malaga Airport.

 

Recent job losses are putting safety at risk as maintenance on rolling stock has suffered, as has customer service due to a lack of staff in other areas according to the union.  They claim they now have no choice but to strike.

A union representative has said: “Almost 6,000 jobs have been lost that will have to be recovered if the rail quality standards in Spain are to be maintained”
