Spanish air traffic controllers call strike

Spanish air traffic controllers have called for a four day strike next month.

The strike has been organised by the USCA controllers’ labours union who are in dispute over fines and suspensions given by airport operator AENA to 61 controllers for a walkout that happened back in 2010, the Mail Online reports.

The workers will strike on June 8, 10, 12 and 14 for two hours each morning and two hours each afternoon.

The strike is likely to cause chaos for sun-seekers - during the last strike five years ago, 600,000 travellers were stranded in Spain and the army was called in to take over control towers.
