Train Strikes Called Off

Three days of strike action by train drivers have been called off after the union reached an agreement with the operator last night.  Members of the train drivers’ union Semaf had planned to stop working on Friday, Monday, and Tuesday to protest against reduced services and staffing levels.

The strikes woud have disrupted trains between Fuengirola and Malaga airport.

Return To Pre Covid Services

The train operator Renfre has now agreed to “recover the train service and staffing levels that the company provided to the public before Covid”.  The union has claimed that there are currently “861 fewer trains per day, compared to 2019. That is 25,830 fewer trains per month and 309,960 fewer trains per year” on a national level, going on to accuse Renfre of taking advantage of the coronavirus situation.
