The National Confederation of University Workers (Contu) announced plans for a strike on Monday, October 29, at universities in the states of Oaxaca, Morelos, Michoacán, Zacatecas, Nayarit, and Tabasco. Organizers indicated the strike will be the first in a series of protest actions that will continue until their demands are met. Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions are anticipated around universities in the above states.
Contu claims to have exhausted opportunities for mediation, and accuses the government of not treating university workers' salary expectations, as well as the general financial condition of Mexico's public universities, as a serious concern.
Individuals in Mexico are advised to avoid protests due to the risk of violence and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
