Spain - Regional orchestra on strike - September 30, 2016

Musicians of the Filarmonica de Gran Canarias voted in favour of strike on 16 September 2016. The vote was overwhelming: 68-14. The cultural council, Consejero de Cultura, has said the orchestra might be shut down. Although the strike is not backed by the trade union FSC-CCOO, the union has asked from the government a ‘sensible solution’ to the strike and to avoid the closure of the Foundation.
