The Single Port Union decided this weekend that on Monday there will be strikes by sector in the port, in protest at the dismissal of 150 workers from the Montecon company weeks ago, while another group of employees had their wages reduced by cutting 25 to 15 days.

According to the union’s statement, the strike will be for 72 hours if no progress is made in the negotiations.

The port workers decided “to maintain the plan of struggle resolved in the General Assembly on May 5, and implemented by the Executive Committee by virtue of not having any formal proposal that contemplates the claim of the port workers.”

Labor Minister Pablo Mieres had a meeting with company representatives on Friday that confirmed the dismissals and salary reduction of those who remained. On the same day there was an instance between leaders of the National Labor Directorate, the MTSS, union delegates and the company. From the latter, the unions left snubbed because “it is not the meeting that the union was waiting for.”

Mieres had asked that the union measures not increase until a final proposal is delivered, and they agreed that the deadline to expire is Tuesday night.

“The measures could have been suspended, as was said at some point, if the ministers, or the Ministry of Labor, the Ministry of Transport and Public Works, had at least come up with a solution to the main problem we have now, which is the announcement of the dismissal of the 150 workers”, he told Underlined Martín García, leader of the union.
