Strike by Fuerteventura baggage handlers in December

Handling strike called at Aena airports for the December long weekend.

The strike will take place between 4 and 10 December and will last until the officers involved "assume their responsibilities"


UGT has called a strike for workers in handling services at Aena airports for the week of the December long weekend in protest at the situation generated after the resolution of the tender for this service, reports El Confidencial.

The union points out in a press release that the situation generated by the "fund" of the competition "has only raised more uncertainty" about the labor stability of the sector. It stresses that Aena "still does not establish a real, concrete and clear commitment" on how to act in situations of non-compliance with the agreement, limiting itself to being "a manager of awards".

Thus, it alleges that in the last seven years there have been a series of breaches in labor matters by "all companies" that have been reflected in thousands of lawsuits, collective conflicts and strike calls. In addition, they highlight that licenses have been awarded to companies that were already in breach of the labor agreement.

Along these lines, they highlight that Aena has not included any sanction or expulsion mechanism for companies that do not comply with the commitments and "thus once again inhibits itself from its responsibility as a public promoter" over workers.

The date of the strike is yet to be specified, but it will be the week of the December bank holiday – between 4 and 10 December – and will last until the agents involved "assume their responsibilities".

We got our bags when we came off our flight earlier this week, so if it did, someone is still doing the work!
