Potential transport strike in Spain in beginning of July
The Spanish transport union (Plataforma Nacional Defensa Sector del Transporte) is planning to call for a vote on June 26th to strike on July 1st, 2022. This same transport union organized the earlier strikes in March over high gas prices and working conditions.
It remains to be seen if the transport union will choose to strike and if so, whether they will rally the support of other drivers or unions in Spain after government concessions ended the March strikes. At this point the potential size and scale of disruption from a planned work stoppage is not yet known.
We will continue to report when there is official notice, but please be aware of this for any planned shipments around this time and reach out to your local representative for updated schedules or airfreight alternatives for urgent consignments.
