SEVILLA, 9 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Andalusian supermarkets have not observed an increase in demand due to the carrier strike called for next Monday, November 14, since they have asked the Government to guarantee the safety and supply of products and raw materials at a time "especially critical "for the industry.
The general director of the Andalusian Confederation of Food and Perfumery Entrepreneurs (CAEA), Álvaro González de Zafra, told Europa Press that "although consumption remains stable, establishments are going to make an extraordinary collection to avoid possible shortage of supplies in the event of a strike".
Zafra has highlighted that "this is not the right time" to call a strike in the transport sector, "not only because of the dates, close to Black Friday and the Christmas campaign, but also because of the exponential increases in costs suffered by consumers and companies".
"We do not share the moment or the opportunity", added Zafra, emphasizing that the carrier strike will have a "very damaging impact, especially for SMEs".
