The Legislative Assembly Workers’ Union (SITRAL in Spanish) made the decision public after getting the new parliamentary leadership, controlled by the ruling party, to agree to receive it to discuss the layoff of a thousand employees.

‘We managed to get the employers to have a rapprochement with the workers and the workers will negotiate with them: satisfaction is great, because those were difficult times,’ Carmen Sosa, representative of SITRAL, said.

Spokespersons for the group confirmed to Prensa Latina that Ernesto Castro, former private secretary of the Presidential House and head of the current legislature, agreed to listen to the demands of this union.

The protest was launched because Castro refused to talk to SITRAL about the dismissals, calling its leaders ‘rioters’.

The outcome reassured many for the moment, as information circulated about the possible deployment of riot police and other forces of order to evict those who were on strike in a corridor of the Legislative Palace.
