Organized industrial action over pay has been staged by the employees of the legal system in Mallorca for the second week now. The law courts in Palma de Mallorca are incapacitated in their jurisdiction. Amongst other cases, judgement in excess of 250 divorce cases had to be adjourned. That’s a lot of unhappy couples it seems.
My photo shows the local offices of the UGT (General Workers Union) in Felanitx. Just like in other European countries, unions in Spain have shed lots of their power over the last few years. A little strike action here and there helps demonstrate that unions are still in existence.
The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: February 1st, 2008. The time was 11:37:03.
