Soller Train workers’ Unions have  confirmed that  the proposed strike actions set to take place next month and in June  will go ahead as scheduled “unless an agreement can be reached before hand”.
Soller Mayor and a representatives for local businesses warned earlier this week the move could have a serious impact on the region’s finances, not only because of the amount of visitors that would not be able to make their way to Soller but also with the possibility travel agencies could start to cancel future partnerships with the Company.
Workers’ unions were nonetheless far from impressed and have decided to stand their ground.
As things stand, the partial strikes planned for May are set to go ahead, as well as the full day strikes planned for June.
The unions who yesterday called an emergency meeting with representatives from the Soller train workers said that the meeting was not to discuss the possibility of the strike, as that decision had already been made, but to discuss the “safety and occupation rates of the train”.
“Our reasons are not entirely economical- even though a salary increase of four percent is one of the demands and a 70 percent raise on extra hours.”
