Travelers using the El Prat airport in Spain’s Barcelona in the runup to Christmas will face the threat of delays after workers for the IAG group announced holding an industrial action on Dec. 21-24.

The Union General de Trabajadores (UGT) confirmed the news in tweet, explaining the action had been called for about 2,000 IAG workers at El Prat as they had still received no solution to staff shortages.
