To express their dissatisfaction with the ongoing dismissal proceedings of H&M Spain, the Spanish unions representing H&M employees in Spain announced a series of protests during the month of May. This can be read in an official statement from the Spanish trade union Comisiones Obreras, which represents the majority of the more than 1,000 employees who are leaving. The unions are calling on H&M employees in the country to take part in, among other things, a 24-hour strike on May 19 and May 21.

With the protests, Comisiones Obreras, together with the UGT union, wants to put pressure on the H&M board in the country to “change its attitude at the negotiating table,” Comisiones Obreras said in the official announcement. The unions are mainly concerned with reducing the number of people who have to leave. They also want H&M to offer compensation terms to its employees in Spain, with voluntary compensation terms that allow for voluntary redundancies.

Negotiations will be concluded on Sunday, May 23. During the negotiations, the unions want to mobilize the workers of H&M Spain in various ways, including by encouraging them to participate in “demonstrations” (such as on the occasion of Labor Day, last Saturday May 1), “part-time strikes of 2 hours per shift ”on May 14, a“ widespread strike ”on May 19 and 21, said UGT and Comisiones Obreras.

It is not yet known how many H&M employees in Spain will participate in the protests.
