His membership have decided today to give a vote of confidence to the Canarian government, leaving them to keep their promises and intercede with the state authorities.
Paz, acknowledged that a few days will be needed for them to fulfil theses commitments, but added that failure to do so would result in the transport workers resuming industrial action.
He also confirmed that negotiations continue in Las Palmas concerning the problems that carriers are having with long delays in payment on the part of the Port Authority.
For their part the autonomous government has agreed to request that the Ministry of Public Works looks into tachograph use currently in force in the islands, as well as increasing inspections aimed at combating unfair or illegal competition and delay the changes to braking system testing at ITV stations until they have the appropriate machinery in place to perform the tests .
It was also agreed that a meeting will be held with officials from the Ministry of Education to clarify the situation regarding school transport.
