Labour unions at Spanish airport operator Aena  have called a 25-day strike, from 11 February, the day the state will list 49 percent of the company on the stock market in its biggest privatisation in 18 years.
Strike days will be taken between 11 February  and 25 August, a union source said yesterday.
Industrial action, called by Aena workers’ two main unions to protest the privatisation, will hit maintenance, power and fire fighting services, among other key airport areas, the source said.
Spain’s largest union, CCOO, has claimed that the market listing violates the employment terms originally agreed with the public operator.
Aena, which has some 9,000 employees across its 46 Spanish airports, declined to comment.
Shares in the world’s largest airport operator are expected to sell at 43 euros to 55 euros  each, valuing the whole of Aena at 6.45 billion to 8.25 billion euros.
