Transport Strike More Likely for Thursday in Mexico

Looks like 9am on Thursday morning, April 26th a national truck strike will be underway.
Not all trucking sectors are in agreement with it but it will likely cause some traffic headaches around ports, casetas, and federal highways.

That really sucks. I've had to spend 7 hour wait at a toll in Los Mochis sinaloa due to a transport strike.
But bikes can avoid all of that. Vamonos recio!

I ain't seen shit. I work at a port too. We have no shortage of working truckers today. ???? If anything the line of trucks waiting to go through customs looks even longer than usual.

Looks like it fell apart, some sectors had already opted out.
Good thing it didn't jam up the port entrances. I've got work to do here today.

Plans falling apart in Mexico? I can't imagine such a thing.

I just caught a radio interview here where the strike leader said the participants were going to park alongside the highways so as not to cause a disruption.
Ok, so now we have a caring and prudent union of Mexican truckers? LOL! Next, they'll be asking for toilet seats at the Pemex truck centers.

I think

Since this weekend is going to be a "puente", (May the 1st is a holiday). Many folks have from friday until tuesday to relax, and lots of them are going to hit the roads and travel to the beach or other tourist destinations in large numbers, so the truckers are making their protest antics "softer" as to not cause extra- chaos on the shure to be busy roads.
If anyone is traveling this weekend down here, drive or ride with extra caution.

It has morphed from the usual fuel price protest to a protest against weighting and double trailers.
The PRI now suddenly have a conscience, watch for it to become political real fast with PRI politicians pushing legislative proposals against double trailers.
Over here, there were some parked.
BLOQUEAN CARRETERAS!

Más de 160 delegaciones de transportistas en el estado se sumaron para protestar contra el gasolinazo, particularmente en la ciudad y puerto de Veracruz, Ver., se manifestaron en contra de la Aduana Marítima de Veracruz y APIVER, por el alza al precio del diesel, la inseguridad en carreteras y contra la NOM 12, (que se refiere a pesos y dimensiones), medio centenar de transportistas de carga, pasaje y turismo "adelgazaron" el entronque de la autopista Veracruz-La Antigua y el bulevar Rafael Cuervo, a la altura de Puerto Seco, estacionando sus unidades en cordón sobre el carril de incorporación vial.

El portavoz Juan Antonio Treviño Flores, informó a NOTIVER, que participan en la manifestación miembros de la Cámara Nacional de Autotransporte de Carga (CANACAR), Alianza Mexicana de Organizaciones de Transportistas (AMOTAC), de Operadores Unidos y del Sindicato de Traileros, quienes objetan ácidamente la logística errónea de la Aduana Marítima de Veracruz (ADUANA), y de la Administración Portuaria Integral (APIVER), porque injustificadamente los retienen hasta 6 horas, para ingresar a cargar o descargar a la terminal marítima, lo que les provoca retrasos en la importación y exportación de mercancías y gastos extras no previstos.

Asimismo, por el retraso injustificado de la conclusión de los trabajos del muelle número 7 de la terminal marítima de Veracruz, que desde hace más de un año debió haber quedado concluido y a la fecha la obra está abandonada, lo cual les genera perjuicios.

También se manifestaron por la corrupción galopante de la delegación de autotransporte federal de la SCT y de la Policía Federal de Caminos, la falta de mantenimiento de las carreteras y de nuevas vialidades por lo que las existentes se convierten en inseguras, así mismo en contra del alza del precio de los combustibles particularmente del diesel.

Igualmente demandaron a la Secretaría de Hacienda (SHyCP), una simplificación fiscal.

El paro camionero en el acceso a Puerto Seco, se realizó sin perjudicar las operaciones propias de la terminal ni el tráfico vehicular de esa parte de la ciudad y puerto de Veracruz, manifestación que fue fuertemente vigilada por oficiales de la Policía Federal que acudieron a la vanguardia de la columna en varias patrullas de la PF, número de identificación 12983 y 09873, respectivamente.

More Pemex toilets now have real seats. Really. A big change, imho.

But, you better have your own paper.

Other than a formed fixture meant for greater comfort, what is the real difference...

Got paper...?

Pissed

And you better have some single peso coins, too.
More and more Pemex's are going "automated" and using the electronic door locks where you have insert a few coins to get the door open.
There is nothing worse than having your own urine or more used against you by holding it hostage for ransom.
And don't get me started on what you have to do if the inside door handle doesn't work to trip the switch to open the damn lock when you are trying to leave. Having effectively liberated your body's waste and then being trapped in the same space with it due to a faulty mechanism in 110f high humidity is something that turns you into MacGyver pretty damn quick. LOL!
