In El Salvador and in the United States unions and public services are UNDER ATTACK. But in both countries, workers are fighting back!
From February 3 to 13, 2013, two leaders of El Salvador’s organized labor movement will tour the East and West Coasts of the United States to share experiences, perspectives and strategies in the transnational fight for workers’ rights and dignity. They will detail the movement’s campaign against the US-sponsored Public-Private Partnership Law currently under debate in the Salvadoran legislature, which threatens to put the last of El Salvador’s public services and industries on the corporate chopping block.
- The East Coast tour with Jaime Rivera, a leader in the Electrical Sector Workers Union (STSEL), will be visiting Washington, DC; New York City; and Boston.
- The West Coast tour with Alex Gomez, a leader in the National Lottery Workers Union (SITRALONB), will be visiting: Seattle; Olympia, WA; Portland, OR; Santa Cruz, CA; San Francisco; and Los Angeles.
