Transport strike threatened in Honduras

With the failure of nationwide negotiations with the government transporters in Honduras have threatened to strike as early as Tuesday.

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

The president of the National Transport Board, Jorge López, said that officials from the Secretary of Public Works, Transportation and Housing have called his people liars and have backed away from a promise made June 12 to sign an agreement negotiated earlier.
"Transport Minister José Rosario Bonano retracted what was agreed to at this meeting," said López. "He accused us of being out of touch with reality and told us things that make no sense, for example that in 45 days he will review operating costs of 959 interurban routes."
