Metro workers are expected to hold partial strikes in Barcelona from Friday, September 21, through Monday, September 24. The stoppages will affect individuals attending the Mercè city-wide street festival, taking place September 21-24. The strike schedule is the following (all times local): Friday 07:00-09:00, 19:00-21:00, and 20:30-22:30; Saturday and Sunday 11:00-13:00, 19:00-21:00, and 20:30-22:30; Monday 10:19-12:19, 17:44-19:44, and 22:50-00:50.
