    Dockers strike in Peru

    Post  luxemburguista on Tue Oct 27, 2009 5:57 am

    On Monday 10/26 13,000 dockers stopped work in Peru for 24 hours in every port in the country. They were protesting the privatization of the port of Paita. The dockers union believes that this is just the beginning of the privatization of all ports in Peru.

    Of the 135 dockers who work in the Paita dock, over half have lost their jobs since privatization and wages have been cut from 70 soles (aprox. $25) to 50 soles (aprox $17) a day.

    The head of the union stated; "President Alan Garcia is handing over the port to Chilean and Portugese capital."

    The head of the Chamber of Commerce stated: "Everytime we privatize, are they going to strike because they don't like it?" He begged the dockers not to strike because thousands of workers who depend on imports and exports could lose their jobs. He affirmed "the doors of dialogue are always open."
