Metro workers in Madrid are planning to hold a 24-hour work stoppage on Thursday, October 17, to denounce workplace health hazards and a lack of workers.
Significant transportation disruptions, including train delays and cancelations, are possible if the strike continues as planned. Crowded conditions on operating lines and other forms of public transportation are to be expected.
Madrid metro workers have held a series of strikes and demonstrations since June 2018 to demand that authorities implement appropriate measures for asbestos removal in the metro system.
Individuals in Madrid are advised to monitor developments to the situation, prepare for related transportation disruptions, budget extra time to reach their destinations, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
