The Federation of Fuel and Petroleum Derivatives Transporters of the State of Minas Gerais (Sindtanque-MG), announced, on Friday (29/10), through a memo, that it will not participate in the possible event.

Truck drivers strike, which may be next Monday, November 1

. The entity does not detract from the importance of the movement and justifies its absence in action as well as in the negotiation process.

We consider the movement to be legitimate, given the difficulties that carriers have faced across the country in recent years. However, since we are currently in negotiations with distributors of fuel and petroleum products and with the Governments of Minas Gerais and the Federal Government, we have chosen to join our efforts in the struggle to meet the requirements of the sector.


According to Irani Gomez, president of the federation, this week Sindtanque-MG met with the team of the Ministry of Infrastructure in Brasilia to present proposals to the government on measures to reduce fuel prices and demand compliance with the sector’s demands. The foundation also said that after the All Souls holiday (November 2), formalize a request for a hearing with Governor Romeo Zima (Novo), to deal with the 12% Diesel Circulation Tax on Goods and Services (ICMS) cut.

“With ICMS reducing diesel in Minas and freezing the final weighted average price (PMPF) for three months, we believe that not only the carriers, but the entire community, will be relieved, with the possibility of lowering fuel prices, which will certainly reflect on the prices of food and products” .
