Strike continues as justice minister refuses to negotiate

Spain

Unions representing workers in the Ministry of Justice, including FSC-CCOO and FeSP-UGT, are continuing their all-out strike action while the minister refuses to negotiate. The strike committee entered the ministry’s head office determined to demand that negotiations begin and remained there, waiting for a negotiator to arrive. But 24 hours later there had been no progress and the only steps taken by the Ministry was to try to restrict the movements of the committee and confined it to the meeting room with no access to food or drink. The all-out strike began on 30 May following two three-day strikes earlier in the month. The unions are demanding negotiations over pay levels and implementation of the law on organisational efficiency which has serious implications for workers’ pay and career development.
