Spain / Thousands of striking Iberia workers protest layoffs

Thousands of striking workers of Spanish flag-carrier Iberia protested noisily in Madrid Wednesday, furious at management’s plans to cut 3,800 jobs following its merger with British Airways.

To the din of horns and smoking firecrackers, workers massed outside the company’s headquarters, waving red and yellow Spanish flags and signs such as “Get your dirty hands off Iberia” and “British go home”.

That was a reference to British Airways, which merged with Iberia in 2011 to form the International Airlines Group (IAG), in a tie-up aimed at slashing costs.

The group announced last week that it would axe 3,800 jobs at Iberia, out of a total 20,000.
