After employees of the printing of AGR-Clarin newspaper were layoffed, the workspace is occupied for more than two month and the employees are on strike. The demand is to revoke the layoffs. At the moment the employer tries to break the strike by printing the Sunday edition of the newspaper in Chile. The strike and the occupation found a massive echo and many unions and syndicates solidarized with the fighting employees.
This all happens while the government of Macri attacks workers’ rights as part of an austerity policy and tries to break the resistant of the unions and syndicates. So the AGR-Clarin strike is one part of massive struggle for preserve workers’ rights.
