Partido Popular backs Mijas sports service worker strike

STRIKE ONE: It is the first ever workers’ strike in Mijas ©PP Mijas

THE Popular Party (PP) in Mijas has publicly backed municipal sports service workers, who staged a one day today (Monday) strike in protest at increased privatisation.

It is the first strike in the history of the locality, signalling a political crisis for Mijas Council.

The PP blames Sports Councillor Nuria Rodriguez for the unprecedented situation, claiming that her actions reveal a contempt for the workers involved.

It believes that the decision to privatise sport services in the area has been rushed, is unjustified and against the interests of Mijas residents.

The PP also claims that the move will cost the council an extra €1.5 million annually, as well as putting at risk the jobs of municipal sports service workers.

Mayor Diego Maldonado has been called upon to sack Rodriguez and suspend the privatisation process immediately.
