Abstract

Spain held elections June 15 for deputies to the European Parliament, and for the first time since Franco died, the socialist UGT trade union did not call on its members to vote for the ruling Socialist Party (PSOE). The union offered two reasons for its decision: opposition to the government's social and economic policies, and the government's failure to respond to the demands of the December 1988 general strike.
