Chimbote’s harbor on strike


In Chimbote, an
estimate of US$75.500 was lost due to the strike on behalf of the harbor
workers, it’s been going on since January the 6th. The strike occurred
when the workers asked for an increase in their monthly salary and a rotation
of work hours. But, their demands were denied and declared illegal by the Ministerio
de Trabajo (ministry of labor). However, now there is a risk that neighboring
regions may opt for a strike as well. Tomorrow the Ministry of Labor will
decide if they should lift the illegality of the strike in Chimbote.
