Rail controllers and ticket inspectors to strike
05 December 2018 @ 14:15

A NATIONWIDE strike by rail controllers and ticket inspectors has been planned for next Friday (December 14) and repeat industrial action may be staged over the Christmas period, warns one of Spain's largest unions, the Labourers' Commissions (CCOO).

Up to 1,800 rail inspectors have been calling for greater job security and for more staff to be taken on to ease their workload.

More and more long-distance, medium-distance and high-speed AVE trains are running without controllers, who carry out valuable work in preventing passengers from fighting, causing wilful damage or disturbing their fellow travellers, as well as helping those with mobility problems and accompanying minors travelling without an adult.

Inspectors complain that the rail board, RENFE and rail infrastructure organisation ADIF are failing to provide the necessary funds for the transport network to run smoothly.
