ASCTEG visitors at No 6 Convent Place
A DELEGATION from the Association of Spanish Workers (ASCTEG) visited Gibraltar on July 8 to meet Chief Minister Fabian Picardo to air their fears concerning the result of the recent referendum in view of comments from the Spanish Government.
ASCTEG advised the Chief Minister of its recent activities and meetings in support of maintaining a free flow at the frontier to safeguard Gibraltar’s economy and jobs for its members.
The main concern of all parties present was the threatening attitude of the present caretaker Spanish Government.
For his part, the Chief Minister gave assurances that the government of Gibraltar would continue providing normality at the frontier so that jobs would be safeguarded. It was agreed to continue contact as the new political situation developed.
