Brussels will decide by July 17 if the roughly three billion euros (4.0 billion USD) in state aid which Spanish shipbuilders received between 2005 and 2011 were unauthorised and if they will have to pay the money back. Unions have called for a day of protest and strikes on July 11 when European Union's commissioner for competition, Joaquin Almunia, will meet with representatives of Spanish shipbuilders in Brussels.
