Pilots at Iberia have called 30 days of strikes in a dispute over the start-up of Iberia Express, which they see as a threat to jobs and conditions. Iberia pilots will strike every Monday and Friday from April 9 to July 20, their union SEPLA said yesterday. “The company intends to divert 40 planes from the main group to the new subsidiary, which would mean the elimination of 8,000 jobs,” SEPLA said. Pilots held 12 days of strikes between December and March but called off strike action after both parties agreed to mediation. Talks broke down on Sunday.
