Construction Workers On The Panama Canal Expansion Project Go On Strike
The construction workers who are working on the project to expand the Panama Canal in the area of Cocoli declared a strike on Friday, 13 April 2012, to demand greater safety measures when performing their duties, after one worker died in the early morning hours. A man with a last name of Hurtado, the leader of the workers, told TVN that the strike is an act of solidarity over the death of the worker Luis Guardia, who was a mechanic, and they are sure he had children. He added Guardia's death came just after representatives of the workers reported to the ACP safety problems where they work. On the other hand, said they expect answers after delivering a set of demands about what they expect in the area of safety, but they have not yet received a response. "We are trying to make a legal fight," said Hurtado. (Estrella)
