The CMIC leader says that the work has already been executed and delivered promptly without receiving payments.
The Mexican Chamber of the Construction Industry called on the municipal president of San Juan del Río, Guillermo Vega, to cover the payment for the work that was carried out last year and has not been paid to date.
The president of this organization, Álvaro Ugalde Ríos, said there is a work debt that was executed and delivered promptly but that until now is still pending, a situation that impacts the sector.
He pointed out that they have tried to approach the mayor in addition to sending official letters requesting his intervention to cover the payment, but without receiving any response.
“There are some builders who have not been paid since last year…we have sent you some letters asking for reports, to give us an answer about the situation of some fellow builders who have not been paid and we are concerned because they do not there is no response at all”.
Notwithstanding the preceding, he said that the works have already been carried out and delivered promptly, and the contracts are in place.
In this condition, he cited the case of a company affiliated with CMIC that, at the time, only received the advance, but the rest of the money had been impossible to collect. It is about added an amount of approximately three million pesos.
Ugalde Ríos asked the municipal president of San Juan del Río “as he was given to deliver the work and do his job well and that respect must be reciprocal.”
In these conditions, “we make a call to give us the answer, to answer us.”
Finally, he mentioned that it is only with this municipality that there is a debt for works already carried out, and he also recalled that for more than three years, they have not been able to establish dialogue or participation with the mayor, so there is currently no participation of companies affiliated with CMIC in that municipality.
