Train strikes in Spain TODAY: Renfe is operating a ‘minimal service’ after being forced to cancel hundreds of journeys due to nationwide walkout

TRAIN services across Spain are running a ‘minimal service’ today amid nationwide strikes.

Some 310 trains have been cancelled Friday after walkouts were ordered by the CCOO trade union over working conditons in Renfe and Adif – including the implementation of a 35-hour work week in the latter.

From 6am to 9am, 1.30pm to 3.30pm and 6.30pm to 8.30pm, the so-called Cercanias services will be running 75% of its usual services.

Throughout the rest of the day the number of services will be half that as usual, risking long queues and very busy trains.
