A committee of Catalan Railways, FGC, has announced four hour strikes this Monday and Wednesday, and the 22nd & 24th of November, between 12 o’clock midday and 4 pm. The strike will affect the  Barcelona-Vallès and Llobregat-Anoia lines, whose stations will be closed during these hours as the Generalitat this time does not guarantee minimum service.

The strikes are provoked by a decree passed by the Generalitat cutting wages by 5% of all workers in the public sector, including Railways.

Rail workers argue that they are not public officials and therefore are covered by a collective agreement with the law establishing remuneration and working conditions. Thus, the works council considers that the decree violates this agreement and the right to collective bargaining.
