They denounce the overcrowding of the Cercanías trains despite the high levels of contagion

The CGT continues its fight for the recovery  of the more than 30 Cercanías trains eliminated in these months by Renfe due to lack of drivers. This union had planned to hold a new protest act today but has decided to suspend it due to the high rates of Covid infections in Malaga.

However, they criticize “Renfe’s lack of responsibility” which despite the high levels of contagion “treats users like real herrings, piling them up inside the wagons.”

They also denounce that to the 34 daily trains suppressed, “surprisingly, they are removing some more almost daily, so the annual balance now adds to the 4,738 trains suppressed from lines C1 and C2in Malaga, all of them OSP (Public Service Obligation) that should have been provided in accordance with the Renfe program contract -State in force until 2027 ”.

What has been called to be the European year of the railroad has been, in the opinion of the trade unionists, “the year of the railway debacle and the worst thing is that it has no signs of a solution to the retention in other autonomous communities of colleagues. railway workers who have been granted a transfer to Malaga but are not being executed, preventing this serious situation from being alleviated for employment in the public company Renfe. As well as for citizens who are seeing the services contracted by the Ministry cut by 30% and mobility limited, on the line between the Malaga capital and the Costa del Sol, which by extension is the most profitable in the country even though they have made an effort in dismantling it ”.

The lack of a railway staff in Malaga and the suppression of OSP trains in our province will continue to be denounced by CGT with all kinds of claims and legal actions before the courts. It should be remembered that the Prosecutor’s Office admitted the complaint for the “arbitrary” cuts made by the manager of Renfe OSP Andalucía on 12 November.

The trade unionists explain that they will continue “trying with all our might to safeguard a fundamental public service for citizen mobility and against climate change and the depopulation of the interior of our province and rural areas in general.”

From CGT have appealed to citizens to publicly denounce, “collaborating with the dissemination through social networks while the extreme harshness of the pandemic persists,the railway emergency that we suffer in Málaga and the robbery at night and treachery to which we are being subjected to a public good such as the local railway and the backbone of the territory ”.

In this sense, they recalled that in 2021, only in the province of Málaga, a balance of OSP (Cercanías and Media Distancia) trains eliminated will be reached in excess of 6,000 trains.

CGT, continues to demand, “as we have been doing and saying since the beginning of summer with all kinds of protest actions, more trains and more railways, that the OSPs are complied with and the replacement of all the trains that existed before the start of the pandemic ”.
