The transport sector calls a three-day strike before Christmas for the “abandonment” of the Government

The Goods department of the National Road Transport Committee (CNTC), an entity that brings together all the agents of the transport sector with the Government, has declared three days of lockout before Christmas due to the “state of abandonment by the Government “, as they have indicated this Wednesday in a communiqué.

The closings will last 24 hours and will take place on December 20, 21 and 22 of this year.

The CNTC’s Goods department has stressed that “the patience of the sector” has been exhausted, as well as the “reasonable” channels of negotiation. The companies also accuse their clients of an “absolute lack of sensitivity” due to the current economic situation, as well as taking advantage of their “dominant position” granted by the current regulation.

“Only a radical and urgent change on the part of the Government and customers could avoid this conflict,” the CNTC’s Goods department has warned.

The agency has criticized the ban on drivers loading and unloading trucks, the non-implementation of the Eurovignette and the mandatory application of the fuel cost review clause. The construction of “safe” rest areas for freight professionals is also missing.

From the National Federation of Transport Associations in Spain, the Fenadismer employer, they have also announced the strikes and point out that “the current situation of political and economic lack of control, with exorbitant rises in the prices of basic supplies such as diesel or electricity have only served to put the finishing touches on a sector that has been very affected since before the pandemic.”

They explain that the carriers “expected at least to be heard, defended and supported by the Ministry of Transport in a series of historical claims in which the opinion of shippers has more weight than those of carriers “.
