Colombia: S.O.S SINTRAEMCALI (Public Utility Union): 60 WORKERS SACKED

15-07-2004 13:38

60 workers including SINTRAEMCALI President Luis Hernandez and 5 other members of the union’s leadership sacked – 14 July 2004
SINTRAEMCALI are famous for successfully resisting privatisation in 2001 under the previous national government, when they occupied the HQ of their employers - EMCALI - the Public utility service provider in Cali. The occupation lasted over 30 days, after which the former Colombian president reached a negotiated settlement with the workers, assuring them that the state-run service would not only not be privatised, but that SINTRAEMCALI's workers would gain management control of the service. The new President - Uribe - disassociated himself with this agreement.
SINTRAEMCALI hold workers' assemblies to achieve popular mandates. Their stated priority is to achieve an efficient service, at the service of the poor. In the time they were in effective control of Cali during a brief period in 2001, they managed to sack corrupt managers - replaced by teams of specialist workers.
