They say that the law that prevents work from doing less than the cost, which the government promised for June 30, go ahead. Furthermore, they return to condemn the Chargers’ treatment.
Platform to protect the freight transport sector Those who went on strike in mid-March to protest their working conditions have warned the government that they would resume the protests on April 2, if promised. Basically, what they consider to be their “number one” requirement: the law that prohibits hiring truck drivers at a loss.
“The Minister for Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, Raquel Sanchez, told us she would be ready for June 30 and we would be informed of her progress and words, but There is still one and a half months left and we have not received any official or direct news.” Manuel Hernández, president of the forum, has expressed condolences., They also ask to know the acceptance system and the means of effective application.

However, Hernandez has also criticized the Chargers’ actions. He assured that, once the strike was suspended and observing that he urgently needed to go ahead with the rush of goods, he took a positive view of the prices. But once that situation is overcome, “they are returning to blackmail and marketing” to rent their services “far below operating costs”.
Thus, they condemn that retaliation is being taken against the truck drivers who took part in the stoppage and, whereas, These shippers have increased the rate charged by factories to between 40% and 60%, but they do not pass it on to the truck drivers. In addition, the fuel subsidy approved until June 30 – a discount of 20 cents a liter – has already been amortized by a hike in the price of fuel, “which has become up to 10% more expensive since the strike to date”.
According to Hernández, we must add to all this “unfounded complaints from the authorities”. against some of the carriers participating in the protest. A measure of pressure they are taking to court.
In conclusion, the Forum has once again taken this opportunity to question the role of the National Committee for Road Transport, Which they define as obsolete and discredited. He is the only actor recognized by the government as a legitimate interlocutor and with whom he had an agreement in March To end the struggle that was rising up to the big companies. The committee consists of large operators, but not the platform, which protects the interests of small businesses and self-employed truck drivers. who constitute the “entries of the region” and, therefore, it must be with them that agreements are negotiated and signed”
