  • Description

    About 6,000 building workers attended a rally near Bilbo on Saturday (13 November) and voted to continue their 32-day-old strike.

    SYNOPSIS: The strike has crippled construction sites throughout the Bilbao area. Union organiser say there are 33,000 men on strike and that no work will be down until the strikers' demands are met.

    The rally took place at Baracaldo, some five miles (8 kilometres) from Bilbao. Union officials have presented building companies with list of ten demands on behalf of the men. The main points on their list are: a pay rise equalling about 80 pounds sterling a month, a 40-hour week, income taxes to be paid by the construction companies and the right to elect their own union officials.

    At the rally an offer of a 20 pound sterling a month increase was put to the men, who voted against it.
