Spain -Strikes at Madrid metro -April 17, 2013

Metro workers in Madrid have announced a series of strikes to protest the impossible choice they have been given. The municipality has asked workers to choose between a 10% wage cut across the board or accepting 720 redundancies. Trade unions have reacted they accept a plan for early retirement at 58, but do not accept the wage cuts or the forced redundancies. Strikes will be organised on several day, including the bank holiday of San Isidro (15 May) and a day of the football match between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. The strikes will take place during the afternoon rush-hour.
