Brace yourselves

You have seen the effect of the strikes in France and in Greece. Next Wednesday it is the turn of Spain.

Public sector employees in a wide range of areas including the transport, postal and emergency services, among others, have staged their own partial stoppages over the past several months due to wage reductions and other cutbacks that have left many disgruntled workers up and down the country.

The main unions in Spain have called for a general strike on September 29th so we can expect widespread disruption to a whole range of services.
