The train companies RENFE and ADIF have been forced to cancel more than 500 trains due to strikes by the CCOO, SF and CGT. The three trade unions motivated the strikes by a lack of personnel. Trade union CCOO stated that the strike could have been avoided if RENFE acceded to their demands and showed the will to negotiate with them. The demands of the CCOO include the contracting of at least 1,400 new workers and the building of new high speed lines as well as the internalisation of maintenance contracts. CCOO is also asking that RENFE puts ticket inspectors back onto regional trains as it considers that their removal was ‘unfair’ and places undue responsibility on the drivers.
