Palma.—The first stoppages took place on the train and Metro services yesterday morning as a result of the strike called by the Works Committee of the Majorcan Railway Service (SFM).

Yesterday was the first of a series of industrial actions which will be repeated on 14th, 15th and 22nd November.
According to an operations inspection of SFM, there were no incidents or disruption to minimum services, so that 50 percent of scheduled trains between 7am and 9am were running.

A spokesman for SFM said that 15 members of staff kept the train services operating and said that the public had not been affected by the stoppages.
In the afternoon, there was a partial service running between 6 and 8pm. Eight services were guaranteed on the train line in the afternoon, some of which stopped at all stations between Palma and Manacor.

Underground
On the Metro line, industrial action took place between 6pm and 7.30pm which affected journeys between Palma and the Balearic University. Minimum services meant that there was an underground service running every half hour.

The timetable for train and Metro services on other strike days can be researched on the internet on Majorcan Railway Services website www.trensfm.com, or on the Majorcan Transport Board website www.tib.org.
