Fears for Spanish jobs in Gibraltar

UNION officials have expressed concern after claiming that 120 Spanish jobs have been axed on the Rock since the turn of the year.

Up to 150 further jobs could be at risk in the coming weeks, with 70 per cent of those affected coming from La Linea, according to the Association of Spanish Workers in Gibraltar (ASCTEG).

“The financial crisis has hit the neighbouring population later, but it is affecting us and we are worried,” said spokesman Juan Jose Uceda.

It comes just days after the Spanish government was urged not to rock the boat over the issue of sovereignty amid fears that it could adversely affect Spanish job prospects on the Rock.

  1. The new Gib government has had to bin all the Spaniard workers because, all the Gibraltarians that work for the online gambling agencies are about to be made redundant when they leave for UK shores.

  2. That sounds like they are looking after their own – good.

    How many Spanish offered jobs to the expats in the good times – we just got cold shouldered even when we could run rings around the locals.
