Tulum dump truck unions finally reach Maya Train work agreement

Tulum, Q.R. — The dump truck unions of Tulum have reached an agreement that will see them work on section 5 south of the Maya Train. On Wednesday, Alfredo Solís Durán, representative of the José Quian Chan Union for Tulum, said that an agreement was reached with five unions to work that section.

Some of the drivers, he said, have already started working in an area where the station will be. Solís Durán said after several weeks of service and rate disagreements with Maya Train authorities, they finally reached a deal with Mota Engil México SAPI de CV, who have been subcontracted by the Secretariat of the National Defense (Sedena) for that section.

Since the agreement, approximately 25 drivers have been working along an area of the Tulum-Cobá highway to open an access road.

The two sides have been in negotiations since July 26. In mid-August they reached a deal that will see all five Tulum dump truck unions take turns under equal conditions working that section of Maya Train.
