Spain -Train drivers call for strike -August 15, 2015

The train drivers and workers trade unions have called for a series of strikes during September. The 24-hour strikes will probably take place on 4, 11, 14 and 15 September. The reason is a lack of progress in the negotiations on a collective bargaining agreement by rail company Renfe, as well as a failure to reach an agreement on the subject of human resources. According to the unions, hiring of large groups of workers is required to stop the deterioration of the public company, which already has plans to sell 49 percent of the company's goods and to privatise the maintenance of trains, threatening nearly 5,000 employees.
