Spain - Security staff Madrid airport on strike over warm clothes and bonuses - December 31, 2018

Some 300 security staff at Adolfo Suarez Madrid Barajas airport walked out on 21 December 2018 in a strike action in an ongoing dispute over bonus payments, as well as insufficient clothing to keep them warm in the cold.
