Following strikes and protests in Spain last month, whilst there has been some resolve, there are still issues. below is a report from our Barcelona partner of the current status.
“The main unions have accepted the agreements achieved on the negotiations with the Government:
- 5000 ME in direct help.
- Royal Decree 3/2022 that qualifies the hauliers to invoice the percentage of extra cost due to oil increase (ICB).
- 0.20 cents/liter of direct deduction on fuel.
BUT: the platform that started everything (Plataforma para la defensa del transporte) is still not satisfied, and they say they are rearranging themselves to keep on protesting on the streets
At the moment, since Monday, the services stopped have restarted and today we can tell that the incidences are very few. Whilst we hope it stays clear, there is still some uncertainty.”
