Chile’s National Dockworkers Union Begins 48-Hour Strike Monday-Tuesday

November 25: Further to precious reports of widespread strikes impacting Chile, “The Chilean Dockworkers Union announced on Friday that its members would strike on Monday and Tuesday, paralysing ports up and down Chile, and that other sectors would strike on Tuesday and Wednesday. ‘Human rights are non-negotiable,’ the union said in a statement on Friday. ‘The reasons for a new general strike are unchanged: rejection and punishment of a criminal government that has responded to protesters with brutal repression.'” (Al Jazeera)

Social media posts by ports such as Antofagasta indicate that the strikes went ahead as announced, with one report stating that they were being carried out across at least 24 ports nationwide. (Unión Portuaria de Chile via Twitter)
