petition letter translated:

TO CONSELLERIA DE TRANSPORTES DE LA GENERALITAT VALENCIANA (this is the transport section of Valencian government)

NO TO WORK CUTS AT FGV (Valencian public company railways). NO TO TRANSPORTS SERVICE CUTS AT FGV.

Why are we mobilizing?

Valencian government, in order to lessen its dreadful management, has decided to fire workers of the public sector companies. Among them, there are hundreds of Valencian public railways' workers (FGV).

As a customer, this situation how affects you?

Less regularity= less and worst trains. Security will decrease in trains circulation and issues concerning you as customer of our premises as well.

More railway stations closed, less and worst attention and information.

Decay of premises and equipment.
