Around 500 Renfe train staff to strike on Spain’s Costa del Sol NEXT WEEK over pay conditions

WALKOUT: Renfe staff in Malaga are striking next week

AROUND 500 Renfe staff in Malaga have planned to strike over pay conditions next week.

The union CCOO has set the walkout date as Monday July 15, lasting all day.

The state-owned rail company is accused of not meeting workers’ demands in the key areas of employment, hours and salary.

One source of anger for Renfe employees has been that an agreed 0.5% wage increase has been omitted from new contracts.

CCOO also called on the transport firm to ‘unilaterally’ apply an agreement to reduce the working day to 37.5 hours.

Renfe also came under fire for a ‘poor’ employment rate as its workforce in September 2018 stood at just 13,694, after totalling 13,723 in August 2017.

“Renfe will not be able to provide, with due quality, the rail transport service, and the amount of rail traffic will increase,” said General Secretary of CCOO’s Railway Sector, Manuel Nicolas Taguas.
