POSTAL workers in Spain are to stage a three-day walkout in protest at low salaries.

The strike, which will run from December 23 to the end of Christmas Day, has been organised by trade unions UGT and the postal workers’ representatives SLC.

“Postal workers do not believe they are remunerated sufficiently to deal with the workload they are given,” a UGT spokesman said.

The walkout, which has been timed to cause maximum delay over the busy festive period, is also a protest over equal opportunities.
