In brief: Metal sector workers strike in Uruguay

* Workers from Uruguay’s metal sector have gone on strike in protest at the decision of transnational metallurgy company Cinter Aperam to stop operations in the country. The strike action was called by the metal workers’ union (UNTMRA) and included workers from service stations, the plastics industry, mining, the electronics sector, workshops and mechanical assistance, and gained support from the dairy and telecommunications sectors. The strike, called between 9am and 1pm, included a march to the headquarters of the economy and finance ministry (MEF), where the workers gathered before starting their mobilisation towards the national labour directorate, which is part of the labour ministry (MTSS). According to UNTMRA, Cinter’s decision to leave the country, announced on 30 May, will leave 150 workers without a job and affect a further 30 indirectly.
