The protest named as "The National day of fight with strikes and paralyzation” should happen in all Brazilian states tomorrow, Thursday JULY 11TH, 2013, and it will involve many categories of workers in Brazil, including port laborers. The protesters will be on the streets in order to achieve better application of the public money, besides others matters.
The leaders of the protest guaranteed a peaceful protest, but the paralyzation should cause a heavy impact in every port in Brazil where the port laborers decided to join the strike.
Regarding the National protest from the port laborers, which was scheduled to occur today (July 10th, 2013) in all Brazilian ports, despite of the suspension of the national protest by leaders, as per informed in our message sent yesterday, the Stevedores in Santos Port decided to maintain the protest for today against a local terminal called EMBRAPORT claiming for hiring of Stevedores affiliated to the Union/Syndicate/OGMO.
We will be following-up developments and reverting in case of any further news related to the above matter.
