Spain - Unions continue protest against regional government - January 24, 2011

The FSC-CCOO and FSP-UGT public service federations are mobilising at regional level in response to attacks on pay and pensions in the public sector. The federations are working together in the region of Andalucia with mobilisations on 19, 25 and 28 January that they hope will push the autonomous government of the region to negotiate agreements that generate employment, guarantee employment rights and maintain social protection. Earlier this month, the two federations also organised a major demonstration in Murcia in protest at the regional government’s proposals on public spending. The unions have threatened a general strike in the region if the autonomous government does not respond to their demands.
