easyJet strikes: Is your flight affected as staff in Spain continue nine-day walkout? | Travel News | Travel
Why are easyJet staff in Spain striking?
According to the USO union, Spanish crew are paid substantially less than their European counterparts and are striking to get a fairer deal.
Last month, Union secretary Miguel Galan shared that his members want the “same working conditions” easyJet staff enjoy in France and Germany, and will continue to push until this happens.
He said: “Currently, easyJet cabin crew members in Spain have a base salary of €950, which is €850 less than our colleagues in France or Germany.
“Spain has the lowest base salary for its crew of all easyJet bases in Europe. If you fly many hours, you pay the bills, but at the cost of reducing rest time and flying more hours.”
