RECOPE Workers’ Union (Sitrapequia) will defend the monopoly institutional mechanisms, which face a referendum process that aims to open the sector.
Manuel Rodríguez, general secretary of the union, explained that its main objective was to raise awareness in the population by providing information about the importance of the institution.
He added that if taxes are removed from the fuel price, the value of the product would comparatively be the lowest in the region and, in terms of quality, it is the best.
The trade unionist thinks that RECOPE is not responsible for the fuel price, as its value is determined by an international market condition, as well as the tax items that it owns.
The secretary general of Sitrapequia explained that there are citizens involved in a referendum process, which means that they are not people involved in politics with a party structure; however, the goal is to reach people with the right message.
