Multiple unions representing public sector workers are planning to hold a nationwide strike on Thursday, May 30. Union leaders are demanding that the government reinstitute collective bargaining in the public sector. The action is being supported by the General Confederation of Workers of Peru (CGTP), as well as state workers. Demonstrations are expected to be organized by unions in major urban areas across the country. In Lima, striking workers will gather at Plaza Dos de Mayo starting at 10:00 (local time).
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be anticipated around all demonstration sites. Disruptions to government services are also expected during the strike.
Individuals in Lima and across Peru are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence during the strike period, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
