7 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The railway area of the General Confederation of Labor (SFF-CGT) has announced a new day of strike for next Monday, April 10, at ADIF to demand the implementation of a 35-hour weekly day and compensation for the loss of purchasing power due to inflation.
This strike will take place after the one already called by the union on March 20 with the same demands, some in which both Adif and the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda have insisted since September.
In a statement, CGT has valued the agreement that the company has offered to workers in the sector and has described it as a “trap” because it would give a “ball of oxygen” to the public company.
Thus, the union calls a strike again against the non-application of the agreement to reduce the working day to 35 hours in weekly computation, a reduction that according to the ‘Framework Agreement for a XXI Century Administration’ should serve to promote employment, rejuvenate and modernize the template.
According to the calculations made by the union, for every 16 days of an 8-hour day worked since November 17, the date of publication of that agreement, each worker has worked one extra day, which they should have accumulated as rest, which in turn Applying the agreement would result in the generation of approximately 800 jobs.
