Guayaquil, Quito and Cuenca will hold labor protests
Next Thursday from 10:00 until 16:00, the three main cities of Ecuador will organize protests in which several working unions will participate, such as the United Workers Front, the General Union of Workers of Ecuador, the Ecuadorian Confederation of Class Organizations, the Confederation of Workers of Ecuador, the Ecuadorian Confederation of Free Union Organizations, the Federation of Public Servants, among others.
Mesías Tatamuez, president of the Ecuadorian Confederation of Class Organizations, said the objective of the protests is to defend the rights of workers and reject the points that, he considers, affect workers on the draft of the Labour Code, delivered on last May 1 by the Minister for Employment Relations, Carlos Marx Carrasco, to the Assembly.
They will also reject the constitutional amendments that aim to include public sector workers in the Public Service Law (Losep for its Spanish acronym).
The unionized workers in the National Parliament will not participate in the march.
