Spanish dispute called off for now

AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS in Spain have decided to cancel plans for a strike during August which would have caused enormous harm to the national tourist industry.  In ON THE SOAPBOX of the AERBT issue 2 August Tim Jeans, Managing Director of Monarch Airlines, highlighted the problem.  "The executive committee has decided not to exercise the right to strike during the month of August in order to demonstrate responsibility," said Cesar Cap, Head of Communications at the Union of Air Traffic Controllers (USCA).  Spanish air traffic controllers voted by an overwhelming majority on 3 August to strike over government changes to their working conditions.  It remains unclear whether another strike will be called for September. www.spain.info
