Spanish transport workers to start a strike


The RTVE news agency reported on Monday that transport workers in Spain will begin an indefinite strike on November 14.

The National Platform in Defense of the Transport Sector, whose members are upset over increasing fuel costs, organized this event. They state that a provision requiring carriers not to operate at a loss has not been enforced by the Spanish Ministry of Transport in recent months.

After the nation's hauliers embarked on a 20-day strike in March of this year, the law was agreed with the government. The supply chain in Spain was affected by this protest.

In June of this year, the average price of gasoline and diesel at the majority of Spanish gas stations exceeded €2 per litre, setting new records. This number has decreased dramatically over the previous few months, but the Kingdom's inhabitants' financial status is still greatly impacted by high prices.
