Spanish unions call airport worker strike for start of August

MADRID (Reuters) - Spain’s main workers unions said on Friday they have called a strike of more than 60,000 baggage-handling and airport staff across all Spanish airports for the beginning of August after more than two years of failed negotiations.

Talks between unions and company representatives have failed to reach accords on pay rises, hours, breaks, excess hours worked and professional growth, Spain’s largest union Comisiones Obreras (CCOO) said in a statement.

The CCOO has asked the Spanish labour mediation agency SIMA to intervene in talks to avoid a strike, it said.
