Preparations for the general strike on June 20 are gathering momentum and yesterday Balearic union bosses called on workers across the region to join the strike. Today, the main CCOO and UGT unions will finalise their strike action and last night, despite assurances of minimum services, the outlook was looking bleak. The unions are against minimum services being applied to coach companies which could mean that tourists arriving and leaving the Balearics will have transport problems. The unions are also considering only allowing one domestic flight in each direction, i.e. one from Madrid to Palma and just a single flight in the other direction. However, unions are aware of the importance of airport coach services and once the strike plan has been finally approved, contingency plans will be devised, based on exactly how many people are arriving at the airport at any one time.
