Spain - Confederations threaten general strike against retirement age rise - December 21, 2010

The CCOO and UGT trade union confederations have warned the national government against increasing the retirement age from 65 to 67. The unions have organised protests against the pension reforms before and renewed their determination to fight the changes during their demonstrations against the government’s austerity measures on 15 December. The unions say that the government response will be crucial in determining whether action will go ahead in January.
