The Government “does not see the point” in transport strikes on the eve of Black Friday


The Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, Rachel Sanchezassured this Tuesday that The Government “will do what is necessary” to avoid indefinite unemployment that the Platform for the Defense of the Transport Sector (a minority organization in the sector) has convened starting next Monday. Sánchez, in statements to Telecinco, stated that “it doesn’t make sense” at the moment to propose a strike in the terms in which it has been called and has warned that this “It does not benefit anyone, neither inside nor outside the sector”. An opinion shared from the National Committee for Road Transport (CNTC), which will not support this strike convened in a critical week, a few days before Black Friday and the start of the Christmas campaign.

“What we have to do is continue working so that all the improvements we have introduced unfold their full effects. We are not going to achieve this by calling a strike and it is certainly not going to be another pressure weapon because we are already doing everything we have to do and the will of this Government is to guaranteein any case, that carriers work in decent conditions“, has underlined.

Thus, the minister has defended that the Government “has complied with each and every one of the agreements” reached with the sector, and has recalled that the decree that improved the conditions of carriers was approved in August, so ” It hasn’t unleashed its full effects yet.”

Nevertheless, the minister has opened the door to improve what has already been approved to ensure compliance, but has asked that the rest of the transport organizations are also listened tosuch as the National Committee for Road Transport (CNTC), which recognizes that the conditions of the sector have improved and “that they have come out en bloc to reject the strike” called by this platform “certainly minority” . “It is fair that the rest of the organizations in the sector are listened to, as they are offering information that is not consistent with what this platform says,” the minister pointed out.

“If what it is about is adjusting those mechanisms to ensure compliance, we will do it,” he reiterated. The minister has assured that this must be the joint objective of the Government and carriers, to ensure that the regulations are complied with, and she has indicated that the Executive has “no problem” in meeting with the convening platform stop to talk about it.

Sanchez has denied the accusation of the platform that the Civil Guard has been disavowed to control and report breaches of the law and has reiterated that “all the mechanisms and all the reinforcements” necessary for the regulations to be complied with will be articulated. In this sense, he has underlined that the Ministry is working on a specific inspection plan for the sectorbut has once again requested that complaints be formalized if it is observed that there are breaches of the regulations.
