Supermarkets fear supply problems due to carrier strike


Andalusian supermarkets have not seen an increase in demand before the strike of carriers called for next Monday, November 14, since they have asked the Government to ensure safety and supply of products and raw materials at a “particularly critical” moment for the sector.

The CEO of the Andalusian Confederation of Food and Perfumery Entrepreneurs (CAEA), Alvaro Gonzalez de Zafrahas indicated in statements to Europa Press that, “although consumption remains stable, establishments they are going to make an extraordinary collection to avoid possible shortages in the event of a strike”.

Zafra has highlighted that “it’s not the right time” to call a strike in the transport sector, “not only because of the dates, close to Black Friday and the Christmas season, but by the exponential increases in costs suffered by consumers and companies”. “We do not share the moment or the opportunity”, added Zafra, emphasizing that the carrier strike will have an impact “very harmful, especially for SMEs”.

Possible supply problems

The new indefinite strike has revived the fear of supply problems like those suffered last March during the mobilizations promoted by the same organization. Those strikes, lasting twenty days, were interrupted after the Government promised to carry out a cost control law (approved in August) that obliges shippers to set a fair and sufficient price so that carriers pay to do your job.

However, the platform – made up mostly of self-employed workers and SMEs – ensures that chargers, given the “passivity” of the Administration in controlling the application of the standard, they do not respect the cost price to carriers. From the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, carriers have been urged to report breaches of the law that they detect so that the inspectors can carry out their work and, if necessary, impose fines that can reach 4,000 euros.
