At last the trade unions have seen sense and have called off the hotel and coach strikes, planned for this month, which would have brought the island to a standstill. The coach strike was called off late on Friday night and the hotel strike 24 hours earlier. Unfortunately, the damage has already been done. The threat of strike action will have already dented the last-minute holiday booking market. We have received countless emails from concerned tourists in the United Kindgom who feared that their holiday would be hit by industrial action. Now is not the time for strikes. The local economy is in recession and some say that things will get worse before they get better. The only bright spot at the moment is tourism. Spain needs the revenue from tourism more than ever. A good season could certainly help the local economy move clear from the financial crisis. Thanfully, people have finally seen the light, but is it too late? We will just have to wait and see and hope.
