Despite the agreement, the unions that signed it indicated their disagreement, because they were asking for a 30 percent reduction in fuel prices.
However, despite not responding to all their demands, the bases of the guilds decided to accept the conditions offered by the Palacio de la Moneda.
“As CNTC, we consider that this is an important advance in the petition for our demands, and we will continue working so that these measures are complied with and implemented within the deadlines established with the authority. We never wanted nor did we seek to reach this point , and this agreement confirms our permanent willingness to reach agreements”, they indicated from the union entity.
For his part, the president of FedeQuinta, Iván Mateluna, acknowledged that an agreement was reached with the Executive, on points associated with security and the stabilization of fuel prices, for which they will lift the mobilizations in the Valparaíso Region .
The Fuerza del Norte Truckers Confederation announced that they will continue with the mobilizations and protests in a large part of the country in the event that the Executive agrees a solution to the strike with the CNTC.
