ON Friday, August 21, a two-hour strike by Iberia Handling at Malaga Airport is expected to affect 40-50 flights and 8,000 passengers.
Iberian Handling serves numerous airlines including British Airways, Vueling and Iberia.
The strike, organised by the workers’ union UGT, was called in response to “numerous redundancies and accidents in the workplace.”
In one recent accident, a worker at the airport reportedly suffered a broken tibula, fibula and ankle.
The strike will take place between 10:00am and noon and will be repeated the following Friday, August 28.
