Puente sees the strike by Renfe workers over their transfer to the Generalitat as “unjustified”.


The new Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility, Óscar Puente, assured this Thursday that his ministry is working to call off the five-day strike in Renfe and Adif to protest against the relocation of Rodalies (Cercanías de Catalunya), which, in his opinion “is completely unjustified.”

In an interview on Canal 24 Horas, Puente, who took office two days ago, recalled that the strike that begins tomorrow had already been called before his arrival at the ministry.

The head of the Ministry of Transport explained that the mobilization seems unjustified since the transfer of Rodalies, an agreement between Pedro Sánchez’s PSOE and the ERC to secure the seven Republican votes for his inauguration, is a complex process that will result in a procedure that is not justified, will be short and “starting a strike without even having started negotiations about the transfer, I do not think is appropriate.”

Puente sends a message of calm to Renfe employees

Puente has stressed that Renfe workers “must be calm, we will take them into account and there is actually a commitment that they will be part of the negotiating tables.”

Their rights “are absolutely respected and protected”, their work and mobility rights throughout the national territory, so they must remain calm,” he stressed.

In his opinion, “it is logical that they give reason to negotiate, that they are part of it, and if at some point there is something that they don’t like so much that they leave the table and go on strike, then that is reasonable .” .” .

“To go on strike now without even starting negotiations seems out of place to me,” he criticized. However, the Generalitat is moving quickly and has already named the person responsible for the transfer, who will be the former advisor of Jordi Pujol in the Generalitat Peré Macia.
