Spanish unions are united as never before in their mobilization against labour law 'reforms' which gut workplace protection and trade union rights and in defense of public services. Following mass mobilizations on February 19 and 29 which brought millions onto the streets, a third Day of Action was held on March 11. Nationwide protests saw 1.5 million angry citizens take part in 60 demonstrations.
The government remains deaf to all discussion of the labour legislation, which was implemented by executive decree, and the budget cuts. Under orders from the European Commission and the banks, the government is committed to stripping away social and workplace protection and reducing public spending even as the country plunges deeper into recession and mass unemployment.
The unions have therefore called for a 24-hour general strike on March 29.
Spanish unions are fighting their own reactionary government and the European Commission's austerity offensive - and they are fighting for the rights of workers everywhere. You can express your support for their struggle - use the form below to send a message to the IUF's Spanish affiliates. Tell them that on March 29 you stand beside them!
