Chilean truckers begin partial strike

Chilean truckers begin partial strike

Santiago, Chile, Nov 21 (Prensa Latina) Summoned by the Fuerza Norte Confederation of Chilean Truck Drivers, Chilean truck drivers began an indefinite strike to demand more security and a reduction in the price of fuel.

The truckers denounce an uncontrolled increase in assaults, robberies, and looting of cargo, with a high risk for their life and integrity.

In addition, there is a weekly increase in the price of diesel which generates losses for them.

We need concrete answers. We have been at dialogue tables since March until now, but they have not been fulfilled,’ Union Leader Cristian Sandoval said.

The Fuerza Norte confederation arose a few months ago and groups of mainly independent carriers from Arica, Iquique, La Serena, Antofagasta, and Paine.

Neither the National Confederation of Truck Owners nor Federaciones Gremiales de Transporte de Carga, two of the largest in the country, joined the call.
