The unions of Fuerteventura Airport form a strike committee against the "plundering of Aena"

The CCOO, FSAE, USO and UGT unions have decided to form a strike committee to propose forceful measures in the face of the "plundering of Aena" on the island. The company in charge of managing airports in Spain is the subject of criticism on the island due to what is perceived as a lack of investment, maintenance and adaptation of the airport's schedule despite the considerable profits it generates.

AENA has received 30 million euros from airport activity, according to the information provided to the workers' representatives, "without these benefits being used to improve services to users, but quite the opposite. The signatory unions maintain that these benefits will only swell the income statements. In addition, they claim that in Fuerteventura AENA is immersed in a scissors in essential quality issues, having a negative impact on the image of the island perceived by the thousands of visitors it receives.

"The airport terminal suffers from a state of dirt and lack of maintenance, creating a bad impression for users, leading to the existence of facilities that border on unhealthiness," denounce CCOO, FSAE, USO and UGT with a unanimous criterion of the unions when it comes to also warning about the recent elimination of seats in the check-in area. These are essential elements, especially, as the trade union representatives point out, for the elderly, people with disabilities and reduced mobility, as well as for pregnant women, since they are forced to wait standing in the long queues that usually form.

In this blacklist of cuts, the four unions report a reduction in operational security measures at the airport, where the last passengers of the day will not be guaranteed the same services as the rest due to the reduction of the minimum workforce. "All this translates into a decrease in security measures, which can have serious consequences and even put people's lives at risk." They stress that the constant lack of personnel that is compensated with many

overtime (more than 9,000 hours were spent in 2023) and on many occasions not covering absences, so the problem is greater, causing fatigue and anxiety to the entire airport staff that also surface in illnesses and sick leave, which worsens the stressful situation of the rest of the colleagues in a loop that AENA does not seem to want to remedy when Fuerteventura airport brings them huge profits.

"The current situation at the airport poses a number of problems that require immediate attention from AENA. It is necessary for the company to reconsider its policy of cuts and prioritise investment, maintenance and the adaptation of airport timetables, to guarantee user satisfaction, operational safety and the proper functioning of airport facilities", demand CCOO, FSAE, USO and UGT willing to face this situation with forceful measures. prolonged, in the interest of achieving "the airport we all deserve".

Tamara - I also seem to remember that there is the ongoing issue of the second runway not being fit for purpose due to lack of lights. I recall reading that AENA were given the funds to do the work but never proceeded.

Haven't been to arrivals since this happened. Anyone know what it looks like now?

Utter madness to remove things that were already there.

Airports worldwide are suffering from decline and staffing shortages, though. Went through a couple in Europe over the summer that would make FUE look like a bastion of efficiency and sanity!
