ADIF seeks an agreement with CGT to avoid partial rail stops

The president of ADIF, Isabel Pardo de Vera, has assured that the public company continues to negotiate with CGT in search of an agreement that avoids partial stoppages for December 5 and 20 in the railway sector, although it has warned that there are certain limits that are "absolutely unfeasible".

According to the minimum services set by the Ministry of Development, an average of 90% of the High Speed ​​and Long Distance trains and 63% of the usual services are established in the Medium Distance trains.
