Airport security unions in Santander (Cantabria) and Girona (Catalonia) announced plans on Monday, August 27, for strikes beginning September 8. The UGT, USOC, and AND unions called for strikes at Santander-Seve Ballesteros Airport (SDR) for September 8-17 and Girona-Costa Brava Airport (GRO) for September 8-12. A representative of the unions indicated the strike may be called off if an agreement can be reached over payment of bonuses and working conditions. Delays at security screening are likely in the event of a strike.
Travelers are advised to allow extra time for security checks, confirm the status of their flights prior to departure for the airport, and contact their airlines for further details.
