Signatures for referendum in Uruguay stop neoliberal measures

Diverio alluded to the government of the right-wing electoral coalition installed in March of that date in Uruguay, when evaluating the current situation of the organized workers participating in public works and housing.

He stated that the planned constructions will come to an end in 2023 and that “the outlook is uncertain there” and many companies work under conditions of labor deregulation, without payment of wages according to the awards, and resort to subcontracts from companies with few inspections from the Ministry of Labor.

The union leader noted in statements to the magazine Caras y Caretas that the mainstream media does not report this situation and that only the conflict unleashed becomes news.

He acknowledged that 2021 ended with a job occupation of about 52 thousand workers, 12 thousand more than the previous year, but clarified that it is due to works of the new pastry plant, the central railway and construction of social housing that will end at the end of 2022 o early 2023.

He also stressed that deregulation makes it very difficult to control works by private companies in private neighborhoods where the contracting does not respect awards and informality grows.
