The Association of VTC France launches "a call for help" for his profession and threatens to block the Paris ring road January 25. These drivers of VTC want to be received in Matignon and the Ministry of the Interior, she announced Friday.
In a letter to Prime Minister Édouard Philippe, the association mentions "the anger of the VTC drivers" and denounces the "general disregard of the government", including that of the Minister of Transport Élisabeth Borne, who "refused" to receive "in nobody "of the VTC delegations in recent days.
Representatives of the FO-Capa VTC and CFDT-VTC unions participated this week and last week in meetings at the Ministry of Transport, which did not participate Élisabeth Borne. The two unions demanded, among other things, a minimum fare for the VTC races and a partial tax exemption of the internal consumption tax on energy products (TICPE).
A blockage from Porte Maillot
At the end of the last meeting on Wednesday night, the two unions said they would like to file a strike notice "soon". They have already organized two days of action last week, with snail operations conducted by more than 100 vehicles in Paris and on routes leading to Roissy and Orly airports.
The VTC "are daily in the service of citizens" and bring a "positive image of tourism in France," argues the Association of VTC France in his letter to Édouard Philippe. It threatens to block the Paris ring road "in both directions" on January 25, with the reinforcement of yellow vests. This blocking would begin at 13:00, from the Porte Maillot, she said in a flyer on Facebook, where she calls including ambulance, civil servants and retirees to join the VTC.
FO calls for freeze on VTC card allocations
For its part, the union FO also wrote to the Prime Minister to report "the impasse" in which is the profession of drivers of VTC, who work "between 12 and 15 hours a day, almost 7 days out of 7". In this letter, FO details the claims of the VTC, including a professional "VTC card allocation freeze" and a "document control to practice (this) profession". […] because too many false documents are in circulation.
Stressing that the "numerous" demands of the VTCs "concern several ministries" and fearing "a social explosion", FO asks Édouard Philippe to "organize very quickly an interministerial meeting on various topics".
