Uruguayan unions go on strike for wage guarantees
Montevideo, Jul 15 (Prensa Latina) The Sindicato Unico Nacional de la Construccion (Single National Construction Union - SUNCA) of Uruguay has gone on strike and is carrying out popular rallies to demand wage guarantees, which other sectors will support in the coming days.
The SUNCA issued a statement calling on unions to gather near the May 1st Square in the context of 'the fight for a collective agreement that reflects the needs of workers.'
Workers from the sector are on strike, the characteristics of which will depend on the resolutions of the departmental directorates, as the arrivals of more than 100 buses with affiliates from all over the country are expected, organizers reported.
Interdepartmental transport and metropolitan bus workers will also go on strike on Friday to denounce measures to cut wages and benefits.
The PIT-CNT union will offer its support on Saturday across the presidential residence, organized by the Red de Ollas Solidarias (Solidary Pots Network).
The food assistance movement reemerged strongly after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and as a result of its economic impact on hundreds of thousands of people who saw their incomes reduced or disappeared.
