IDAAN Workers March To Presidency - Declare Strike To Start On Monday 9 July 2012

Protests & DemonstrationsThe workers of the Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (IDAAN) decreed a national strike this morning, Saturday July 7. This was announced by Rafael Mejia, the secretary general of the Association of Employees of the institution, after a general meeting held in the Cathedral Square, then a march to the presidency. These people say that this strike will begin on Monday, July 9, because the Executive Branch has not complied with the agreements established in the last strike, and because they do not have answers to requests for better working conditions. According to Mejia, some workers will remain at their posts because they are aware that the law says they cannot suspend water service. Earlier, they marched from the Plaza Porras to the Presidency, also to reject the bill that creates the new Water Authority. Although they met with officials of the Presidency of the Republic, they complained they were only received, but were given no response to their requests. They said it was a lack of respect that they were not received by official decision makers at the Presidency of the Republic. (TVN)
