Gas stations: Fegica, the struggle to stay open, not to close

“We are struggling to stay open, not to close”. So Alexander Zavalloni, secretary-general of the Fegica-Cisl, explains the initiative of the progressive closure of the plants launched yesterday by the distributors of transport fuel facing the collapse of the traffic caused by the restrictions for the coronavirus.
“It is a month that we write on a daily basis to the president of the Council, to the ministers, to the ceos of the oil companies, but we never received a response.
The little man that seems to be part of the road furniture, such as traffic lights, provides in fact an essential service. You can download it on his shoulders – he stresses – the whole responsibility.” The fear is that managers do not have the liquidity sufficient to buy the product: “we have proposed to the companies to suspend payments for one or two months, to take turns, but do not give us even the shifts. There he heard none,” he adds.
“There is no strike – clarifies Zavalloni – the danger is that it closes”.
