Iberia Airlines strike possible Dec 14 to 21stHi there,
Just came across this:
"Iberia ground staff, crew plan strikes in December
The ground workers and cabin crew of Spanish airline Iberia Lineas Aereas de Espana are planning to stage strikes between December 14 and December 21 to protest against an aggressive restructuring plan, ABC and Cinco Dias reported, citing union sources."
Sorry, forgot to mention Lufthansa workers are asking for higher wages..which could also be followed by a rejection from Lufthansa which would then be followed by...strikes. But not in December 2012:
"Union wants 5.2% higher wages for 50,000 Lufthansa staff
German labour union ver.di is demanding a wage increase of 5.2 percent for 50,000 Lufthansa staff it represents, reported Dow Jones Newswires. In addition, the union wants to eliminate lay-offs and offer guaranteed jobs for trainees."

1According to "el Pais" Iberia plans to decrease the number of employees by 23 % and on top plans to decrease the salaries of the employees. There is also an unresolved dispute between the pilots and Iberia about the low-cost Iberia Express. The pilots, who have to fly the planes of this company should earn less than the pilots of Iberia. At the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 there were strikes by the pilots. Arbitration did not solve the problem and the pilots want to solve it first and then start with the new problem. It seems evident, that there will be more strikes in the coming month.
