Striking rail workers are fighting to keep an archaic regulation which allows them to receive full pay for time off if they ‘use a microwave at work’.
The nonsensical order from 1980 is one of the outdated ‘Spanish practices’ union chiefs are desperately striking to keep regardless of the disruption and chaos it may infect across the country.
The outmoded diktat states: ‘All staff working with microwave ovens shall be permitted to take time off from work, with pay, for a medical check of any effects on them from the microwave ovens.
‘Such checks shall be made at no less than six monthly intervals on request.’
The unique ruling was revealed after yesterday’s walkout over a row over pay and conditions which caused chaos for Eurovision fans, according to The Sun on Sunday.

Suggesting more misery and disruption to come, the rail union leader behind crippling strikes, Mick Lynch, said they could team up with other rail unions.
This could spread disorder across the North West as such action would disrupt the FA Cup Final between Manchester City and Manchester United on June, 3.
Lack of public transport could mean disaster for the northern city and potentially reap even more chaos and increase the likelihood of accidents if fans have to resort to driving cars to the football event.
Both the RMT and train driver’s union Aslef are still crippling the country with strike action.
A government source told The Sun on Sunday: ‘It’s high time union bosses called off their strikes and gave their members a chance to vote on fair pay offers that ministers have facilitated.’

Mr Lynch strongly denied specifically targeting Eurovision or big football matches.
This came after a clip of Mr Lynch was unearthed of him ranting at a north London mosque.
During the address, he said public sector workers should be entitled to a year of sick pay and that people with ‘darker skin’ are getting ‘ripped off’ by employers.
The RMT boss’s comments were criticised by Tory MPs who accused the union leader of touring podiums to give ‘[Jeremy] Corbyn tribute acts’ rather than negotiating.
In the clip of the speech at the Central Mosque of Brent in November he said: ‘Every worker has the same rights as every other worker – and that’s whether you’ve been here as a migrant for a long time with your family, or whether you’re a new migrant seeking to come into the country, whether it be on a boat or whether it’s on an airplane.’
He added: ‘What’s wrong with a full year of sick pay for people who have given their lives to our services? What’s wrong with a proper set of holidays above the statutory minimum?’
Suggesting ethnic minority workers are being discriminated against by employers, he adds: ‘You haven’t got to be a social scientist… to see who’s getting ripped off.
‘It’s the people with the darker skin, the people who are the migrants of this country.’
