The City Council has offered to prepay for 80,000 euros concessionaire for the subsidy to the service remaining until the end of the year, provided that this amount is intended to pay outstanding wages of workers, an offer that has been rejected.
The Council urges the dealership to pay the wages owed to its workers and restore the service as soon as possible.
Transport Councilman City of Lorca, Eduardo Sanchez, before the incident arising in the internal service concessionaire urban transport, and the strike today wishes to clarify the following points:
The City of our city lies in the payment to the concessionaire of urban transport services established annual grant, and should not in any financial amount that effect.
The existing conflict, therefore, is due to their own economic problems of the concessionaire, in no way attributable to the Consistory or its activity.
It is the company that has to pay salaries to its employees, and not try to divert attention by inventing other issues.
The Council shares the concern shown by the employees of this company and is committed to a negotiated the conflict.
In fact the Consistory has offered to prepay for 80,000 euros concessionaire for the subsidy to the service remaining until the end of the year, provided that this amount is intended to pay outstanding wages of workers a offer has been rejected.
We understand the discomfort of workers, but we consider have been confused in choosing the location of their protest, as the responsibility for this situation rests solely with the service concessionaire.
The City Council, again, does not have any debt, nor is there any delay in payments to the concessionaire.
At the same time, do not know why there is such a situation maintained when, really, it is false.
The alleged "economic imbalance" argued by the company, we have to say it was not until yesterday when the company revealed officially situation.
In fact they have not yet provided any financial information from their accounts to sustain this hypothesis.
This circumstance, in any case, would have to be justified by the corresponding report by the duly audited accounts of the company, proceeding to review by the relevant municipal services.
What is totally out of place is the force posture adopted by the dealership.
The council considers "very unfair and irresponsible" that the dealership service are maintaining that urban transport users suffer those who complete their domestic economic problems.
What is not presentable is an entrepreneur wants to solve a hypothetical economic losses with money from all Lorca.
That is nonsense this Council is not going to assume.
This Town Hall know what really lies behind this internal conflict of the concessionaire.
If this company does not want to continue to provide the service, speak to the light and look for a way out, which is not tolerable is to kidnap urban transport and harm to its users.
