Ryanair's handling services call off strikes at 22 Spanish airports

MADRID (Reuters) - Workers at Azul Handling, the ground handling company servicing Ryanair in 22 Spanish airports, called off a plan to hold several 24-hour strikes between Oct. 28 and Jan. 8 to demand better working conditions, union USO said on Friday.

USO said minimum services set by the Transport Ministry were "abusive and clearly detrimental to the exercise of the right to strike, making it absolutely unfeasible."

Workers were demanding negotiations on a new collective agreement and seeking breakthroughs on issues such as occupational risk prevention and working shifts.
