The airline industry responsible UGT Manuel Atienza confirmed the majority follow the strike by the workers, who said that, along with the unions, have done a “remarkable exercise in patience”, told Cope collected by Europe Press.
Atienza said the efforts of the workers takes place from November 9, when the holding IAG raised the “dismantling of Iberia plan” making “deals and desconvocando the first strikes” however from Iberia “have been three months mocking the workers, the public and the administration, has been a mock negotiation, “he lamented.
“We have an offer to the company’s double-digit pay cuts, increase productivity taking 2,600 layoffs this year via the ERE is in force that is not traumatic” said Atienza, who noted that the proposals include also future proof which is the stumbling block.”
He said the IAG CEO Willie Walsh, “has ordered the management of Iberia who controls the company, not to give an inch” circumstances which in the opinion of the union leader “is like a bank asks letters of the mortgage and then not delivering the floor”.
Similarly, SITCPLA union president, Antonio Escobar, said in an interview with RNE gathered by Europa Press that minimum services decreed by the Ministry of Development “is being fulfilled.”
