To the CUT’s call in rejection of the policies of Sebastian Piñera’s government, was added in the last hours the National Association of Fiscal Employees (ANEF), the Coordinating Assembly of Secondary Students of Chile (ACES) and the Teachers’ Association.

Jose Perez Debelli, president of the ANEF, told Radio Biobio that the board of this organization called upon its leaders and members and members of the union organizations to paralyze their work.

In the same vein, the spokesman for ACES, Gabriel Palape, reaffirmed the support of the student body for the teachers’ union’s statements regarding the lack of guarantees for the health of workers and students in many educational centers.

On the occasion of International Workers’ Day, the strike was initially called by the CUT to demand from the Government an Emergency Basic Income and a freeze on food prices, whose increase in recent months has further deteriorated families’ situation.

But also the Union Central raised the urgency of the protest to demand the Executive to withdraw the injunction presented before the Constitutional Court to prevent a legislative project for the withdrawal of pension funds from being approved.

Although the latter was finally solved and millions of workers will be able to access 10 percent of their pension savings, the rest of the demands remain in full force, CUT president Barbara Figueroa told the media.
