General strike is now really over
WILLEMSTAD – “The general strike is really over.” That was announced by the chairman of trade union central CGTC Roland Ignacio. Trade unions, business and government signed the covenant optimization government related entities yesterday.
This was the last point which had to be discussed and formalized. The parties took about two and a half months to discuss their differences and finally yesterday they came together to sign the agreement.
According to the chairman, the unions have prevented, with this covenant, employers and their companies from encroaching on salary and benefits of employees.
