MADRID, Jan 12 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Correos has exempted postmen who work in the areas most affected by the snowstorm from the delivery, which has left streets inaccessible or at risk of falls or accidents due to the accumulation of ice.
According to the Central Sindical Independiente y de Servants (CSIF), the company has complied with the union’s requests and has decided to cancel the distribution in neighborhoods where the activity is incompatible with the state of the streets.
In addition, the days of absence justified by the storm will not penalize Correos employees who have not been able to go to their posts and will be rewarded as it is “a situation imposed by nature that has caused a storm of unknown consequences for the entire country “, justifies CSIF.
This Tuesday, January 12, up to 11 provinces (Madrid, Ávila, Segovia, Burgos, Soria, Zaragoza, Teruel, Guadalajara, Cuenca, Albacete and Toledo) have dawned with a red alert due to the cold wave with the threat of reaching the 16 degrees below zero.
Another 41 provinces, ‘painted’ yellow, are also on alert for minimum temperatures, as reported by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet). Faced with this situation, CSIF explains that there are numerous points in Spain where Correos employees have not been able to carry out their work due to the dangerous sidewalks.
