Peru: Period of Goodwill Between Gov’t, Workers

Lima, Aug 2 (Prensa Latina) The period of goodwill that emerged with the beginning of the new government became more accentuated on Tuesday in Peru after the largest union and Labor Minister Rudecindo Vega held talks.

A common will to maintain an ongoing dialogue and ensure labor rights was established at the meeting between Vega and the leadership of the General Confederation of Workers of Peru (CGTP).

The current situation contrasts with the atmosphere of extreme tension and clashes caused by the policies of the government of former President Alan Garcia, noted CGTP secretary general Mario Huaman at the meeting with Vega.

Huaman confirmed the support of the confederation for the changes proposed by the new administration of President Ollanta Humala, underlining that the government should put an end to the over-exploitation of labor.

Huaman requested that the Ministry of Labor play a more active role so that labor rights such as union organizing, collective bargaining and other issues are respected.
