“Everything suggests - they denounce - that the draft interministerial decree that has been circulating since the last days of the last legislature has the objective of preserving a now gangrenous system that has allowed, permits and, under these conditions, will continue to allow concessionary companies first of all to enjoy huge income from positions, profited from the public good".

The trade unions let it be known that the complaints sent to the ministers of the previous and current governments, remained unanswered, concern "the state of absolute degradation to which the motorway service areas have been subjected, both in terms of fuel and restaurant prices, completely abnormal and out of the market, and in terms of quality standards", which "every citizen of this country has known at his own expense ”.

All of this, according to Faib, Fegica and Anisa, “is the effect of a now twenty-year policy ”, which has allowed the concessionary companies "to use an asset under concession as if it were a 'private thing'". This is why, they continue, “it is once again up to the small management companies to have the ungrateful task of uncovering a now rotten pot that seems to be functional to everyone except the managers and consumers who, in fact, in less than ten years, have cut of 80% of their purchases on the motorway ”.

The institutions are asking for a comparison so that the budget can lead to an increase in personnel recruitment and salaries medical, veterinary and health services and make "the appropriate health services accessible to all citizens against the lengthening of waiting lists and journeys of hope".

The trade unions also ask for "the immediate opening of the table for the renewal of a national collective agreement seized in the ministerial chambers, the alignment of public health expenditure to the average of European countries and the decriminalization of the medical act, reconsidering it scientifically autonomous and free from ideologies ”.
