Spain - Journal workers announce massive action - April 30, 2016

Workers at El Mundo publisher Unidad Editorial are to strike for 24 hours on 3 May after a first day of talks with management ended without agreement. The strike will involve workers across Unidad Editorial from three major Spanish newspapers: generalist daily El Mundo, business daily Expansión and the country’s leading sports newspaper Marca. The full list of measures announced by the workers committee includes four different types of strike and a reform demand of senior management, including Unidad Editorial chairman’s resignation. The workers of Unidad Editorial consider that the savage lay-off plan is being imposed by Italian owner RCS, due to its financial situation, and not because organisational or economic causes within Unidad Editorial justify it.
