Chile: truckers demand lower fuel prices and government runs aground

The rapprochement between leaders of small carriers and the government of Chili to seek an end to a five-day stoppage encountered its first stumbling block on Friday in the legal complaints filed against the drivers, who interrupted the negotiation before the refusal of the executive to withdraw them.

The President’s Government gabriel boric and the leaders of the carriers sat down to talk to learn about the proposal from the authorities with which to reach an agreement to suspend the stoppage that already threatens food and fuel shortages, especially in extreme cities of the country.

Truckers demand 30% reductions in the price of diesel, the end of the weekly increases in fuel and greater security on the routes where, they say, robberies and assaults grew out of control. The government described as “disproportionate” requests.

Freddy Martínez, president of the southern truckers, acknowledged that there was progress in the talks on Friday, but they were interrupted when the Undersecretary of the Interior, Manuel Monsalve, said that it was not possible to withdraw the thirty lawsuits filed against the drivers on strike for obstructing free transit.

Christian Sandovalleader of transporters from the north, affirmed that the government “Right now he is closing the door.” There has not been a pronouncement from the executive in this regard.

A few days ago, the president gabriel boric warned the union in protest that it would resort to “full force of law” to face the pulse of the truckers. Of the 40,000 drivers in the sector, 30,000 are medium and small.

The paralysis of transport jeopardizes the activity of the country, which due to its narrow geography, mobilizes 95% of the national cargo by road. Food, construction materials, machinery or fuel circulate along Chilean roads and the 3,300 kilometers of Route 5 or Pan-American are the strategic axis that unites the country from north to south.
