Please be advised that the National Fiscal Employees Union (ANEF) in Chile has called for a national strike on both Wednesday, November 13th and Thursday, November 14th.
Chilean public sector workers, including teachers, health care workers, prison employees, and trash services, continued a strike begun October 22 over pay and other issues. The strike was called by the CUT labor coalition, which demands an 8.8 percent hike with 10 percent for lower-paid workers.
In a number of provincial capitals like Santiago, O’Higgins and Rancagua, workers belonging to the National Fiscal Employees Association (ANEF) marched, blocked streets and demonstrated. Union leaders denounced the breakdown in negotiations, but expressed hope that talks would restart.
Ports are continuing to function normally; however, this could potentially cause problems in processing documents to Chilean customs as well as affect cargo entering/exiting port areas.
RCL Agencies will continue to monitor the situation and report further updates once available.
