Spain -Bankers join the strikes -January 21, 2013

Employees at Bankia, Banco de Valencia and NovaGalicia Banco, three banks that were recently bailed out, have announced they are organising strikes against the large scale layoffs in the sector. For the year 2013 alone, some 20,000 redundancies are expected, amounting to about 10% of the total personnel. The bankers, who have until now kept silent in the face of their unpopularity, have now started to join the strikes and protests in the public sector.
