Spain Iberia Strike

Iberia aircraft steps are seen at Barajas international airport in Madrid, Spain, on Monday. Workers at Iberia airlines begin the first of 15 days of strikes to protest the company's plan to cut almost a fifth of its workforce. The pilots union is yet to decide if it will join the stoppage. International Airlines Group, which includes British Airways and Iberia, has said the Spanish airline is fighting to survive.
