The FSC-CCOO and FeSP-UGT public service federations have called a strike on 16 October involving workers in the government's overseas services.

The unions say that the strike is necessary as there has been no response to their demands since a meeting a meeting in June and despite a number of other protests and actions so far in 2017.
