There are still eleven calls for strikes in this 2019 summer in Spain, for this week and September, a month that increasingly records more departures.

The British Airways pilots, after winning the airline the judicial battle for their right to strike, last Friday they finally summoned it on September 9, 10 and 27 for a salary increase.


In Alitalia, the pilots and TCP have called a strike on September 6 due to the expansion of the airline’s sales process and the fear that there will be a suspension of payments that affects the crews.
