Telmex workers strike over separation plans

Thursday 7 September 2017 | 10:32 CET | News
Employees of America Movil's Telmex unit have taken part in a 24-hour strike to protest against the planned separation of the company into retail and wholesale operations, reports El Economista. Workers affiliated to the STRM union held a strike on 05 September to express their concerns over the deal, which they say will directly affect the collective bargaining agreement to which over 35,000 active workers and 20,000 retired workers are signed up. Another strike has been called for 25 September.
