Spanish strikes set to be called off

The threat of strikes disrupting Easter holiday flights to and from Spain appears to be over after airport authority AENA and Spanish unions agreed a preliminary deal.

The airport workers’ unions and AENA have agreed to further meetings to thrash out a detailed agreement, but both sides have pledged to talk until they resolve the remaining issues.

AENA has made certain guarantees and promised to meet one of the union demands by making a group of temporary workers permanent.

Union officials will hold mass meetings later today to present the agreement to members. The unions had threatened to close airports across Spain by calling out their 12,500 members on 22 days starting from April 20.

Strikes were set to take place during the Easter break and continue into the busy Summer period.
