Spain - Union wins backing from tribunal over right to strike - April 6, 2011

The FSC-CCOO public service federation has welcomed the ruling from an administrative tribunal against the Ministry of Justice over minimum services during industrial action. The Ministry of Justice had set out excessive requirements for the provision of minimum services during the general strike on 30 September 2010. The tribunal found that the Ministry had undermined the right to strike of public sector workers and the FSC-CCOO is particularly concerned to highlight the fact that it is the Ministry of Justice that is the subject of the tribunal ruling.
