Second day of queues, delays and cancellations in the nearby network due to the Renfe machinists’ strike. Yesterday the problems were concentrated in Catalonia and Valencia, especially, although also in Madrid, due to the “breach of minimum services” by a group of machinists, according to Renfe’s complaint.
This Friday wagons and platforms will be seen again crowded with travelers, especially in Catalonia. The company has reported that the service “started irregularly” and with “generalized delays” in Rodalies de Catalua as a consequence of the stoppages., reports ..
“Atocha this morning. You go with trains stopped and hundreds of people waiting. Many of them will be late for their jobs, some of them may even lose their jobs. Here the victims are both the striking personnel and the people and those responsible I always know “, picks up a user on Twitter.
Yesterday more than 400 trains had to be canceled that they were expected to circulate as minimum services due to the absence of the drivers. Some stations on the Basrcelona network were also closed, such as Plaa Catalunya, and the interruption of traffic in Sants.
The Semaf drivers union, which represents 85% and is the one that called the strike, alleged that these absences occurred because the drivers were not informed that they had to operate the minimum services and the corresponding letter had not been delivered to them.
Renfe denies it and points out that some drivers have not shown up for work, despite “having the minimum services letter”, which the company considers a “deliberate act”. According to minimum services, 85% of the regularly scheduled trains in Rodalies had to have run.
This is only the second day of the eight strike days that Semaf has called for September 30 and October 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 11 and 12. Renfe has apologized to customers for the consequences of a strike that he considers “absolutely unjustified and the inadmissible position of the leaders of the machinists’ union “.
