  • Bush appelé à invoquer la loi Taft-Hartley pour rouvrir les ports de la côte ouest
    “Si le lock-out des ports n’est pas levé ce week-end, je pense que le président Bush devra invoquer la loi Taft-Hartley obligeant tout le monde à reprendre le travail pendant 80 jours”. C’est ce qu’a déclaré le sénateur Dianne Feinstein qui a présenté ses services en tant que médiateur. Tant chez les démocrates que chez les républicains, l’inquiétude va croissant au fur et à mesure que le blocage des ports de la côte ouest se poursuit. De nombreuses associations professionnelles, notamment dans le secteur du transport routier, multiplient les messages à la Maison Blanche pour obtenir une intervention du président Bush.
  • René Petit (FNTR) demande aux politiques de choisir entre la route durable ou le laisser-faire
    La Fédération Nationale des Transporteurs Routiers français a tenu mercredi son congrès annuel à Paris. Il s’est déroulé sur fonds de morosité: les transporteurs français perdent des parts de marché à l’international et subissent une concurrence de plus en plus forte des transporteurs étrangers sur le marché français, en raison de ce que la fédération considère être “les premières dérives dans l’exercice du droit de cabotage”. Son président, René Petit, a résumé les principaux problèmes lors de son discours de clôture, dans l’espoir que le nouveau secrétaire d’Etat aux Transports, Dominique Bussereau, y apporterait quelques réponses. Le nouveau responsable français de la politique des transports s’est toutefois très peu “mouillé”.
