MALLORCA TODAY - Airport strikes' negotiations break down
Negotiations between the Spanish national airports authority AENA and the unions representing workers who might face job losses as a consequence of the planned partial privatisation of Spain's airports have broken down this evening without agreement. As things stand, therefore, the threat of strikes, starting on 20 April and lasting during the summer, remains. AENA has given the unions a proposal to study further. One of the main issues for the unions would appear to be the future management of Madrid and Barcelona airports.
