“We have complied with all the agreements”
The Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, Rachel Sanchezhas acknowledged this Monday his “concern” about another possible strike in the transport sector and has appealed to the “responsibility” of the collective so that they don’t call strikes again. The Platform for the Defense of Transport, the group of self-employed and small transport companies nationwide that called the strike last March, will announce this Monday if it paralyzes the sector again. Thus, it will announce the result of the vote that it has carried out this weekend in its provincial delegations on the possible resumption of the strike.
“We are monitoring and awaiting the results of the votes,” said the minister, who assured that the Government “has complied with all the agreements reached with the transport sector”. Sánchez, in statements to TVE, highlighted that the conditions and circumstances of the sector have improved and that the Government will continue working to comply with what was agreed.
For this reason, and after offering dialogue to “redirect” the “small imbalances” that may exist, he has called on carriers not to go on strike again, especially in the face of the current “complex moment”. The minister has recalled that the transport decree that was agreed with the sector guaranteed that it could not work at a loss and she has insisted that, if situations arise in which this is not fulfilled, there is a complaint system.
“It is absolutely essential that it be reported so that the Inspection can carry out its work and impose sanctions that can reach up to 4,000 euros”, stressed the minister, who has also advanced that her Department is finalizing an Inspection plan, which it will present “in the next few weeks”, where inspection mechanisms are strengthened.
Asked if it has already been decided to extend the 20 cent fuel bonus beyond December 31, Raquel Sánchez has assured that the Government is “about” to make that decision, which will be known “in a few weeks”. “We will announce it shortly,” said the minister. The head of Transport explained that those measures that are considered most effective will be taken and, in this sense, he stated that the Government is aware that the transport sector is the most affected by the rise in fuel prices.
In any case, the minister has highlighted the “sensitivity” of the Government when it comes to take measures to alleviate the pockets of citizenssuch as free subscriptions to rail transport, of which he has said that two million have already been reached.
