The CNTC distances itself from the transport strike and rejects violence on the roads


They stand before the new announcement of strikes that paralyzed the country for months. The Merchandise Department of the National Committee for Road Transport (CNTC), The body that brings together the majority organizations of carriers with the Government, has rejected the indefinite national strike called by the Platform for the Defense of Transport, the organization that called the strike last March.

“Being aware of the difficulties that companies and professionals in our sector continue to suffer, mainly due to the increase in the price of fuelwe continue betting on the negotiation with the Government as the only valid way to achieve structural progress for our activity that will allow it to successfully overcome the current economic situation,” the CNTC said in a statement.

For this reason, the Committee trusts that companies and freelancers can exercise your right to work “in complete freedom” and that, on this occasion, they do not have to be forced to stop their activity due to episodes such as those experienced in March, in which significant human and material damage was recorded.

“It is not acceptable that the right to work of a majority, whose representativeness is duly accredited in the institutional bodies of the sectormay be called into question due to an inadequate response to the violent behavior of a few, who wander outside those bodies due to their representative irrelevance”, he added.

the CNTC has highlighted the prohibition of carrying out loading and unloading tasks by the driver, the mandatory clause of revision of the price of transport due to the variation in the price of fuel, the reduction of waiting times, the monthly return of professional diesel, or the Transport Chain Law, as some of the advances achieved in the last year by the sector thanks to the negotiation.

In any case, the CNTC points out that there is still much to be addressed, such as the limitation of subcontracting, the lack of professionals in the sector or compliance with waiting times, for which it continues to hold talks with the Government and be able to reach future agreements.

Business organizations are present at the CNTC CETM, Fenadismer -the two with the highest representation-, Astic, Feintra, Fetransa, Atfrie, FVET, Anatrans, Feteia-Oltra, Fitrans, UNO and ACTE. The Platform in Defense of Transport is not represented and will have to wait for the next elections to be able to be.
