REASONS FOR THE STRIKE
The main reasons underlying the Faisa Confail: current increase in the cost of living, loss of purchasing power, safety at work, working hours, work organisation, women’s working conditions and all those issues that require urgent and necessary attention.
The main reasons behind the Cobas strike are: in support of the 300 euro wage increase; the reduction of working hours from 39 to 35 hours per week, with the same salary and reduction of driving time and working hours for drivers; the adaptation of safety and health protections in the workplace as well as for users of the TPL service; for the blocking of privatizations and related tenders for the TPL.
