Positive - Filt-Cgil, Fit-Cisl and Uiltrasporti emphasize - the ballot of the European Parliament on the package mobility

Tarlazzi and Odone: we appreciate also the prohibition to pay salary to the drivers based on the times and to the covered distances

Filt-Cgil, Fit-Cisl and Uiltrasporti have expressed satisfaction for the green light express thursday from the European Parliament to own legal position with the Council of the EU on the modification of the norms on the separation and the having lead times of rest of truck and the buses and on a better application of the norms on the cabotage, with the scope also to contrast the distortions of the competition by haulers who use society convenient.

"The ballot of the European Parliament - they have emphasized the general secretary and the national secretary of the Uiltrasporti, Claudio Tarlazzi and Marco Odone - has rewarded the efforts of the workers and the union against the modifications that, taking part on the prescription minimal of the periods of guide and the periods of every day rest and weekly magazine of the drivers, would have gotten worse the conditions of job of the travelling staff. We are satisfied. We appreciate also - they have added - the prohibition to pay salary to the drivers based on the times and to the covered distances, with which one agrees to put used end to a practical one from many companies, also Italian, than mask a salary and wage to job, with serious risk of street safety".

"Now - they have continued Tarlazzi and Odone - it is necessary that the iter final of approval it proceeds without difficulties and that us dowries of measures that guarantee the respect in Europe of the times of previewed guide and rest from Regolamento 561/2006, for the concrete improvement of the conditions of job of the drivers and against the social and contractual dumping goods in foreign market. At the same time, it is necessary to requalify the street infrastructural net, equipping it of adapted structures to guarantee good conditions of rest, suitable to the psicofisico recovery of leading to the guide of heavy means".

The green light of the Parliament EU - it has evidenced Filt-Cgil - constitutes "an important step towards the regulation of the transport on rubber and for the dignity of the job of leading, with equal rules and protections for all. In the past couple of years, with manifestations and campaigns, to the flank of the European Federation of the Transports - the Federation of the Transports of Cgil has remembered - we have defended and obtained clear norms on the operations of cabotage and the separation of leading thanks to the introduction of more effective controls and they are today not modified and get worse the rules on the times of guide and rest who regard also the drivers of coach and bus".

"Now - Filt-Cgil has emphasized at last - we will continue to hold under observation the effective performance of the future rules and the their corrected application. In fact after the European elections the Parliament will start negotiates for the agreement with the Council and to the term of the negotiation, that it will be able to demand six months more or, Parliament and Council will have to vote a final understanding".

"Our battle - it has evidenced the national secretary of Fit-Cisl, Maurizio Diamante - still marks a point to our favor: the europarlamentari have approved of an improved version of the package mobility that recepisce great part of our demands. The package mobility - Diamante has explained - does not contain more the worsening of the times of guide and rest against which we have fought in the past few months with ETF, the European Federation of the workers of the transports to which we are affiliated. The old norms remain therefore enforced are for the truck drivers that for those of bus to long distance. Instead limits more tightening for the cabotage will be introduced, for which after three days in a foreign country, the truck will have to at least pass 60 hours in the State in which it has center. This measure will be profitable more difficult to make dumping goods in foreign market, that is treacherous competition making to work in countries as Italy drivers of other less and less protected paid states regarding the Italian colleagues. Moreover the application of the tachograph will be accelerated smart is in the trucks is in the buses to long distance that in the vans in order to avoid that the drivers are forced to working hours longer than those previewed from the law, violation that would put to risk safety they, of the eventual passengers and the other users of the roads".

Remembering that the ballot expressed from the European Parliament is not still that end and that the package mobility would have to be approved of definitively within the next European elections, Diamante has concluded emphasizing that the objective of the union is "to improve it ulteriorly in order to limit still more the cabotage and to introduce the tachograph as fast as possible smart".
