According to sources consulted by Grupo Raminatrans, the Spanish Confederation of Freight Transport (CNTC), together with the rest of the business organizations, have decided to call off the lockout of Monday 20, Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 December after the extensive meeting held yesterday and which began at 11:00 am between business organizations and the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, after spending the last two days exchanging documents, points of view and proposals, which yesterday were reflected in a definitive document.

In a statement, the National Road Transport Committee has reported the agreement reached and highlighted among the achievements the ban on the participation of the driver in loading and unloading operations, a “historic claim of the sector in benefit of working conditions of its workers. “The agreement cuts waiting times in half, after which the carrier will be entitled to compensation, as well as the treatment of drivers at loading and unloading centers. The Ministry has promised to carry out a study of waiting times in order to “define the cost of these waits and establish what would be the necessary measures in this area,” he said in a statement. Likewise, the CNTC highlighted, the “commitment to imperatively incorporate into the Law, the clause of stabilization of the price of diesel in transportation contracts, has been achieved, without the possibility of an agreement to the contrary.” In this sense, he pointed out that it is a claim that the sector has been pursuing for years with the aim of “balancing the relationships between carriers and customers.”

Without a doubt, good news so that we can all continue to carry out our work correctly and at Grupo Raminatrans we can minimize the consequences that the threat of this strike has caused. We take this opportunity to wish you a good weekend and hopefully the entire logistics chain will run smoothly on Monday.
