Latest news surrounding the possible Spanish transportation lockdown proposed for December.

From Lamaignere, we want to inform you about the latest news surrounding the possible Spanish transportation lockdown proposed for December.

Monday, November 8

The road transportation sector employers have called a three-day national lockdown starting at 00:00 on December 20 and ending at 23:59 on December 22. The announcement made on Monday afternoon was motivated by pending lawsuits around a protest package put forward in 2020 by the transportation industry. The intention is to combat the various challenges faced by the transport companies and the lack of response from the Government.  This business lockdown is not to be confused with a strike. It is a business closure that has not occurred in Spain since 2008.

An employer's association, consisting of the National Federation of Transport Associations of Spain (FENADISMER), together with other associations that make up the National Road Transport Committee, initiated this motion to the lockdown.

The transport companies are not ruling out a lockdown extension should negotiations with the Government not come to fruition. Consequently, the Spanish Confederation of Freight Transport (CETM) has advised that the stoppage time may be indefinite if the situation does not undergo a notable change.

Friday, November 19

Today, representatives of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility, and Urban Agenda will be meeting with representatives of the transport sector. The hope is that during the meeting, both parties will find a mutually satisfying solution. Thus, ultimately avoiding the lockout planned for the three days in December.
