As reported in O Globo today airport workers and Latam employees are planning strikes to begin during the next few days. The union, Fentac, claims that agreements were not completed last year as promised, so they now want salary increases above the level of inflation and better benefits plus bonuses. The strike will affect 50,000 workers in check-in, baggage and apron services. The Latam employees claim a lack of dialogue so plan to strike in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, Equador and Colombia, although no date has been set. These announced plans, vague as they are, are part of a systematic effort to provoke strikes before and during the World Cup. Other posts cover some of them.
