SEVILLA, 1 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Airbus workers have called a strike in all production centers nationwide starting this Wednesday and until Friday to request a "fair" salary review, according to the level of inflation and the company's "millionaire benefits" .
With these stoppages, they plan to achieve a stoppage of production throughout this week, taking into account that Monday was a non-working day for Airbus and this Tuesday is a holiday, as explained to Europa Press by the general secretary of UGT in Tablada (Seville). ), Manuel Bazarot, and the president of the Airbus Tablada works council (CCOO), Alfonso Mora.
They have pointed out that the collective agreement includes a rise of 1.5%, a figure far removed from the current CPI level, and a salary revision clause in accordance with the company's benefits. "We ask for a fair distribution of the multimillion-dollar profits and for the entire Airbus Spain workforce to be responded to," Mora said.
For his part, the general secretary of UGT Tablada, Manuel Bazarot, has delved into the idea that "the high rise in prices does not affect the workers' pockets." Thus, he has stated that the objective is to achieve a "social and sensible dialogue" so that "the workers do not only assume inflation."
