SECURITY staff at Palma's Son Sant Joan airport resumed their strike from 6 to 9pm yesterday, after the management of Trablisa refused to meet their demands.

Earlier in the day they had gone on strike between 5 and 8am and 12 noon and 3pm. The strike started after management sent the unions a fax repeating the offer which had been rejected last week.

The strike will continue today, and will be repeated on August 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26, and September 1 and 2.
However, there were no major problems as Civil Guard officers took over controls at the scanners, which allowed the queues to move along smoothly.
This drew criticism from the unions, who also slammed the decree establishing minimum services of 85 per cent.
The workers are demanding bonuses which are already paid to security staff in Malaga, Barcelona and Madrid airports. They also reject the change in working hours imposed by the management without consultation, to cover the heavier passenger traffic at Son Sant Joan over the coming weeks.

The first strike, last weekend, had a minimal effect. Some 127'700 passengers are due to use the airport today.
