Uruguay on 24-hour strike for lost wages and in favor of repealing Government’s Law


Source: MercoPress



Uruguay is going through a 24-hour strike called by the labour union Pit-Cnt to demand better wages and working conditions, to defend national development and state-run companies and, most importantly, to say “yes” to the repeal through a referendum 135 articles of the Law of Urgent Consideration (LUC).

Pit-Cnt leader Fernando Pereira explained the strike was an answer to the fall in real wages, the increase in poverty and to protest against measures not taken against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Construction unions, public, industrial, fishing, meat, metal and education workers had pledged to join the strike, together with health care and transport workers.



Cont’d.
