Spain News Alert

Semaf rail workers union calls for 24-hour strike for all Renfe employees on April 23; rail transportation disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 4/13/2019, 12:00 AM until 4/25/2019, 11:59 PM (Europe/Madrid). COUNTRY/REGION Spain

Event

The Sindicato Español de Maquinistas y Ayudantes (Semaf) announced plans for a 24-hour strike on Tuesday, April 23, for all employees working for Renfe. The strike will likely affect passengers returning from Semana Santa, or Holy Week, holidays and may cause significant congestion for rail travel in the days around April 23. Train delays, cancelations, and congestion is expected during the strike.

Context

Semaf is the largest union for Renfe employees. They are calling for a strike in response to lack of agreement between the union and the company and a "breach in the professional development" of workers.

Advice

Individuals in Spain are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate rail delays, cancelations, and congestion, and seek alternative modes of transportation or maintain a flexible itinerary.
