Employees of the Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) public transportation company in Barcelona plan to launch a partial strike from Monday, February 25 to Thursday, February 28. Metro workers will stage two-hour work stoppages during morning, afternoon, and evening shifts. Transportation disruptions are to be expected throughout Barcelona's metro system if the strike proceeds as planned.
Labor unions contend TMB has failed to be transparent in its efforts to address asbestos exposure in the metro network. The strike coincides with the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona from February 25 to February 28.
Travelers in Barcelona are advised to confirm their travel itineraries and to budget extra time to reach their destinations.
