Workers at the public train operator Renfe and Adif, the company that is responsible for most of the country’s railway infrastructure, have been striking every Friday since the start of September.  The strikes are taking place on Friday during three separate time periods. The trade unions want more staffing and are calling for a replacement plan for aging personnel. They are as well protesting against the breakdown of negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement.
