Spain -Judge rules over wild cat strike -April 04, 2014

A Madrid magistrate has ruled that the wildcat strike by air traffic controllers that caused chaos at the country’s airports over a holiday weekend in December 2010 after the closure of national airspace was neither ‘legitimate’ nor a protected right.

A Madrid magistrate has ruled that the wildcat strike by air traffic controllers that caused chaos at the country’s airports over a holiday weekend in December 2010 after the closure of national airspace was neither ‘legitimate’ nor a protected right. The ruling, which represents the prior step before a trial, goes against those made by 21 other courts on similar cases and is based on the fact that the decision to close down national airspace on December 3 and 4, 2010 ‘was not what caused the inaction of the controllers, as they insist on saying […] but rather the contrary: the abandonment of posts of work, carried out in a concerted, conscious and deliberate manner, was what triggered the adoption of the said measure.’
