Uruguayan trade union movement calls for a strike

Montevideo, Jun 27 (Prensa Latina) A four-hour partial strike, convened by the PIT-CNT trade union, is staged in Uruguay on Thursday in honor of the 51st anniversary of the general strike against the civil-military coup dEtat (1973-1985) and for labor demands.

The trade union’s measure and mobilization reject “the illegal investigations against militants of the labor movement” and defend “work and solutions for the workers in conflict.”

It also condemned “company closures, work precariousness, and loss of rights” meanwhile defending public freedoms and individual guarantees.”

PIT-CNT President Marcelo Abdala stated a few days ago that “the need to respect individual and collective rights will be raised in the mobilization, which honors a general strike the workers conducted in defense of democracy.”

Labor conflicts have increased in the last few weeks due to company closures and massive layoffs.
