HOLIDAYMAKERS were given hope of a reprieve from strike chaos last night after a truce was called by Spanish airport workers.
Unions had threatened 22 days of walkouts, including key dates over the Easter weekend and the peak summer holiday season.
The strikes would have closed all of the country’s 47 airports, which see nearly 100,000 passengers flying between Britain and Spain each day during popular times.
The unions have now reached a preliminary agreement with Spanish airport operator Aena to avert the disruption.
A draft plan will be put to ground staff in a referendum next week. The strike, due to start on April 20, was initially called because of concerns about the conditions and job security of nearly 13,000 employees in the face of proposed privatisation.
Yesterday Aena said in a statement: “The agreement was reached after nearly 20 hours of talks.”
The proposal offers to guarantee the airport workers’ jobs and their current working conditions.
