Peru: Urban transport not going to strike, according to union’s leader

Isabel Guerra

Julio Rau Rau, president of the National Corporation of Transport Companies of Peru (Conet) stated that his organization has not agreed on any strike for tomorrow, and he added that the urban public transport service is assured.

He publicly said that Mario Huaman, the General Secretary of the Peru’s General Confederation of Workers, has been interfering and “acting without ethics,” pretending to involve the transportation unions into their protests.

"I regret to say that the public has been misinformed. We don’t know those people who claim to represent the drivers’ union. They need to be a little more responsible," he said.

He remarked that the Government has offered to send police officers to their terminals in order to guarantee the security of the transport.
