Spanish pilot union to hold strike over Christmas

Spanish pilot union SEPLA announced plans to launch strike action over Christmas 2010, claiming the Spanish Government has failed to keep its promise for regulations on maximum working hours for pilots (Typically Spanish, 01-Dec-2010). SEPLA demanded an “immediate publication” of the regulations last week, stating the government promised the regulations a year ago. The union represents more than 6000 pilots across the country.
