EMT Workers are threatening to take more strike action if Palma City Council does not comply with agreements.

At least 50 workers from the bus company staged a protest outside Palma Town Hall on Thursday morning, shouted slogans and waved banners.

The demonstrators claim that none of the 16 points in the pact that ended the strike a month ago have been implemented.

Works Council Spokesperson Andrés Rodríguez has warned that workers won’t hesitate to down tools if there’s no progress by next week.

The pact includes reinstating bus lines which have been out of service since the end of the State of Emergency and the issue of forced vacations during the lockdown, amongst other things.

At this point, this is the only thing that will allow us to be heard. Stage national walkouts. I’m a doctor on the island and these mandates and lockdowns fly in the face of all the data we currently have. The World Health Organization has also come out against these anti-scientific lockdowns. I’m going on strike if this is allowed to continue.
