«At the moment we are still without solutions» to the claims for unpaid wages, says the ATC executive board in a communiqué.

This morning, the union called its members to the Rio Branco bus terminal in the capital, where the company operates interdepartmental lines.

Andrés Martínez, leader of the Copsa union, said that they have not been paid on time for three consecutive months.

He said they are owed amounts corresponding to holiday pay and leave, a situation that began in 2021.

Martínez acknowledged that the «bridge» loan approved by the Banco de la República will alleviate the conflict.

«What worries us is that the company, with what it collects monthly, is not being able to meet the monthly salary payments»,

ATC has already communicated with the Unión Nacional de Obreros y Trabajadores del Transporte (Unott) and does not rule out «intensifying measures».
