Spanish unions plan 25 strikes as anti-tourism backlash grows

Spanish unions are planning 25 separate 24-hour strikes in the country’s airports as part of an ongoing backlash against tourism.
José Luis Zoreda of Spain's tourism association Exceltur said the stoppages would lead to delays, cancellations and reductions in safety.
 
The unions have planned strikes on September 15, 17, 22, 24 and 29, October 1, 6, 11, 15, 27, 30, 31, November 3 and 5 and December 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30.
 
The planned strikes come after a wave of anti-tourist protests swept Spain, with locals claiming visitors are 'taking over' the country.
 
Meanwhile, the number of beds sold to tourists will be capped at a combined 623,624 on the popular Spanish islands of Mallorca and Ibiza - and the number will fall to 120,000 over the next few years.
