The trade unions working in the road transport of goods attacked the government of Aziz Akhannouch, against the background of the new hike in fuel prices on the one hand, and the continued complicity of companies operating in the sector to raise prices.
The Coordination of National Trade Unions for the Road Transportation of Goods strongly denounced what it called “the government’s silence regarding the violation of competition rules by fuel companies through successive price increases.”
The unions considered that the government of Aziz Akhannouch continues to “approach the policy of deaf ears, leaving the entire fuel sector hostage in the hands of fuel distribution companies, despite the issuance of reports confirming the existence of arguments and evidence indicating that these companies committed acts that are contrary to the rules of competition.”
The unions announced their adherence to the principle of capping fuel prices, and the professionals demanded an announcement of a new batch of direct financial support directed to professionals.
The unions stressed that the Competition Council is required to arrange penalties that would deter actions that violate competition rules, as concluded in its latest report, related to nine companies active in the national hydrocarbon markets.
