Rail workers’ union SEMAF confirmed the four 24-hour strikes are scheduled for today, September 4, and also on the 11, 14 and 15 of the month.

Additionally, other national workers union, the CCOO is also set to strike in September due to a breakdown in negotiation with RENFE.

“The failure to reach an agreement on human resources has left us with no alternative but to go on strike,” announced SEMAF.

Failed talks on collective bargaining and human resources between SEMAF and RENFE brought the strikes to a head.

It is estimated that RENFE needs almost 1,200 employees to sort maintenance problems.

A protest has also been set for Saturday September 12 outside Spain’s Ministry of Public Works.
