Uruguay: law to be repealed benefits business fraud

Uruguay: law to be repealed benefits business fraud

Montevideo, March 7 (Prensa Latina) The acting president of Uruguay’s Pit-Cnt trade union, Daniel Diverio, warned that the Urgent Consideration Law (LUC) benefits companies that defraud both the workers and the State.

Diverio argued that this will be the result of the full application of the law, which protects the lack of contributions to social security and avoids employer responsibilities, and “that is why we will not give up the fight for the repeal of 135 of its articles”

He considered, however, that if the law is passed in the referendum on March 27th, the scenario for the union movement will be more difficult, since it erodes the right to strike and therefore the ability of workers to make their demands.

Also, some restrained elements will be triggered and the pension reform and the collective bargaining of the Salary Councils will have adverse effects in a different scenario, and further adjustments to fuel rates and housing contracts will be made, without guarantee with the express eviction.

Diverio claimed, on the other hand, that there is an “unequal” struggle in the campaign for the referendum since the government has the media and the “state apparatus” in its favor.

He argued that the right has geared the story in the media for its convenience and that it is often untrue; the government has a parliamentary majority and in recent days ministers and even the president himself came out to campaign.

Asked about what is at stake in the referendum, he stated that “the conditions that we workers will have to continue advancing and claim our rights and fight.”

He denounced that the LUC changes the rules because the workers demanding justly at the door of their companies for the respect of their rights, are evicted, fired and other workers can be hired to replace the ones making demands.
