Metro Bilbao’s drivers will support new strikes during rush hour this Friday


The first day ended with a participation of almost 90%, according to the Semaf union.

Metro Bilbao’s 200 drivers will support this Friday new strikes, from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, called by the Semaf union, after the “great mobilization” last Wednesday, which followed the “90%” strikes. Thus, the template is intended to require the company’s management to “flight from the model” cheap you implement and commit the safety and professionalization of the steering committee

In a statement, the secretary of the regional railways of Semaf, José Javier Bleda, denounced that “there is great discomfort among the train drivers of Metro Bilbao, as the company, on the one hand, wants to introduce third world measuressuch as, for example, that at any time a ‘non-driver’ is driving a train to alleviate mismanagement, which has led to a staff shortage”.

“It would be like at the airport a worker who does the shipments would be called to take the plane from one moment to the next because they don’t have a pilot,” he warned.

On the other hand, he has criticized the company “wrongly trying to enter into the following agreement because they can continue to please other organizations with perks, but if they don’t have the measures that we drivers demand, the protests will happen over time

Train drivers exercise their fundamental right to strike with respect for the Minimal dictated servicesso that users can continue to travel by train, even if they do so with the inconvenience that a day of strike entails, the union says.

However, Semaf is collecting information about “certain bad practices by the company, aimed at disguising the follow-up to the strike and its consequences by falsifying the order of minimum shifts.”

In his opinion, the company should “return to common sense and include in its regulations the measures for continuous” professionalization of the groupthe recognition of their responsibilities and the definition of the powers, rights and duties of train drivers”.

The interruptions will be repeated on Wednesday 29 June and Friday 1 July (7am to 9am and 7pm to 9pm), Thursday 7, Friday 8 and Saturday 9 July (from 7pm to 9pm), 12pm to 9pm) and on Wednesday 13 July and Friday 15 July (from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 7 p.m.). until 9 p.m.).
