MADRID (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 13th August, 2019) A total of 325 trains will be canceled in Spain on Wednesday due to a strike organized by the staff of the Renfe railroad company, the operator said on Tuesday.
The strike is scheduled to be held from 12 p.m to 4 p.m. local time [10:00-14:00 GMT] and from 8 p.m to midnight, with cancellations affecting long-distance, regional and cargo trains, the statement informed.
The strike is headed by the General Confederation of Labor, which is seeking an increase in railroad staff.
An indefinite strike is currently taking place in Barcelona's El Prat airport but it has not caused any significant inconveniences due to a law that requires the operation of at least 90 percent of air traffic at times of strike.
