In particular, the secretary general of the Railway Sector of this union, Manuel M. Nicolás Taguas, added that this strike in the case of Adif and Adif Alta Velocidad «It would only be avoided if the ministry transferred the company and to the unions the confirmation that the collective agreement is unlocked and begins to be applied ».
