Monaco’s Employers’ Federation, FEDEM, has challenged the PACA regional government to come up with solutions to the poor rail service for Monaco.
President of FEDEM, Philippe Ortelli, has written to Renaud Muselier, President of the Regional Council the neighbouring PACA Region, to express the organisation’s dismay.
Mr Ortelli recounts the many problems encountered by rail users, especially employees in the Principality who rely on the train service for their daily commute.
Trains are frequently cancelled, strikes are a major disruption, trains are too crowded, and there is a lack of information for passengers, he said. The problems have been going on “for too long”, Mr Ortelli added. The inconveniences engendered by the unsatisfactory rail service have major repercussions for the wellbeing of employees.
Mr Ortell said that FEDEM stands alongside employees in seeking solutions, so that Monaco can maintain its attractiveness as a place to do business.
The National Council and government have come together for the 3rd Joint Monitoring Meeting on Covid-19.
As lockdown continues, the fire brigade of Monaco is taking additional steps to ensure the rules of confinement are respected, notably by integrating a drone as part of its public safety repertoire.
The Assembly has unanimously re-elected Stéphane Valeri as President of the National Council, with Brigitte Boccone-Pagès remaining as Vice-President.
