MONARCH Managing Director Tim Jeans alluded to the possibility of strikes by Spanish air traffic controllers in his ON THE SOAPBOX article in last week’s AERBT. It seems that his dire warning could come true, right in the middle of the August school holidays. In a union vote 92% of members have come out in favour of withdrawing their labour. The problem is due to very generous working conditions that the state-owned company which employs them wants to amend, reducing the amount of triple pay overtime paid and being tougher regarding sick-leave. Ten days’ warning of a walkout is required with the government saying it will use every facility to keep the skies open. Readers are advised to follow developments and if flying after 18 August to check their air carrier's website. www.monarch.co.uk
